Tura Magic Ladies will battle it out against Zambia’s Green Buffaloes and Zimbabwe’s Black Rhino Queens in the inaugural 2021 CAF Women’s Champions League Cosafa qualifier.

This follows a draw held last Thursday morning for the Cosafa Region Qualifiers that pitted the giants of women’s club football in the region against one another.

Tura Magic Ladies are in the three-team Group B and have been drawn alongside Black Rhino Queens of Zimbabwe and Zambia’s Green Buffaloes.

South African champions Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies are the seeded side in Group A, and will take on Lesotho Defence Force, Double Action Ladies from Botswana and Eswatini’s Manzini Wanderers.

The top two teams in each pool will advance to the semi-finals.

Bragging rights

It is the first time Cosafa is staging a club competition, with the victor to advance to the continental showpiece event that is set for later in the year.

The stakes are high, with regional bragging rights up for grabs, and the competition is set to provide plenty to action over 10 days.

“This is a momentous day for us in the Cosafa region,” general secretary Sue Destombes said.

“This is something that we have had on our radar for a while, but it’s a great initiative from CAF to implement a Champions League competition and do the qualifiers at a zonal level.

“We have seven teams taking part in 2021, but by next year we hope to have all 14 of our member associations participating. This is just the start, but we are putting a peg in the ground.”
