South Africa: Banyana Banyana Get Down to Business in Port Elizabeth

30 July 2019 - Sasol-sponsored Banyana Banyana wasted no time in preparing for the 2019 COSAFA Women's Championship that starts tomorrow (Wednesday, 31 July) in Port Elizabeth.

The South Africans held their first training session at Westbourne Oval to get ready for their first match, which will be against Comoros.

The clash takes place at Wolfson Stadium, and kicks off at 15h30.
