Bo Rangers FC will be playing in this year's West Africa Championship Cup
The Champions of the Sierra Leone premier league Bo Rangers FC have received an official invite to participate in the second edition of the West Africa Championship Cup.
The Elephants will be traveling to Conakry, Guinea to play in the champions which will be hosting teams from across West Africa that won their various top-tier leagues.
According to the project coordinator, Alpha Mady Touré, the West Africa Champions Cup is a concept that supports the preparation of qualified West African clubs in the African campaign.
It is a question of bringing together, for this first edition, clubs winners of their respective championships and/or qualified in the Champions League, in the same country, with the aim of playing several friendly matches.
This he said would allow them to prepare better for the new campaign.
“It is for us to help improve the performances of clubs in the West African zone, whose only flag bearer to date remains Horoya AC of Guinea”.
“It’s a good preparation with the involvement of Horoya that can lead to a good collective performance, thanks to this friendly tournament. We firmly believe in it”, Touré said in an interview before the commencement of the maiden edition in 2023.
Four teams participated in the maiden edition of the championship in 2022 with Horoya AC defeating Casa Sports from Senegal 2-1 in the final.
This year, the competition will be open to clubs from other West African countries with Bo Rangers FC all set to represent Sierra Leone and using the opportunity to prepare for the Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) Champions League.
