The draw of the women’s premier continental tournament was conducted on Friday night (30 April 2022).

Nigeria will play South Africa in their opening match on 4 July 2022, the South Africa will then host Burundi on 7 July 2022 before concluding their group C matches against Botswana on 10 July 2022.

The South Africans will conclude their preparations of the finals in mid-June before jetting off to Morocco for their 12th participation in the continental showpiece.
