The Ghana Under 20 female national team (Black Princesses) has been drawn in Group E against Japan, New Zealand, and Austria in the forthcoming Fifa U-20 Women’s World Cup.

The draw, held on Wednesday, June 5, 2024, sets the stage for 24 teams to compete for the prestigious trophy. The Black Princesses are aiming to advance beyond the group stage for the first time, having fallen short in their previous six attempts.

Ghana will join Nigeria, Cameroon, and Morocco as the only African nations to qualify for the 2024 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup, which will be held in Colombia this year.

Under Head Coach Ussif Basigi, the Black Princesses triumphed in the WAFU Zone B Under-20 Girls Championship and the 2024 African Games hosted in Ghana. They now aim to replicate that success in the 2024 U-20 Women’s World Cup tournament in Colombia.

Ghana will begin its campaign against Austria at the Bogota El Techo Stadium on Monday, September 2, 2024, before taking on Japan and New Zealand. Nigeria will face formidable opponents like Germany, Venezuela, and South Korea in Group D.

The tournament is scheduled to take place from August 31 to September 22 2024 in Columbia.
