SA U17 Women’s National Team Head Coach Nthabeleng ‘Dunga’ Modiko has named a squad of 35 players for a training camp, in preparation for the 2024 U17 FIFA Women’s World Cup Qualifiers. 

Bantwana will report for camp on Monday, 15 January 2024 as they get ready for Ethiopia in the second round of qualifiers, in a two-legged affair. 

The aim is to secure a ticket to what will be their third participation at the FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup tournament.

After the conclusion of the training camp, the final squad will be announced to commence preparations for the away leg in Ethiopia, on 2 February, and the return leg of the qualifiers will be played at Lucas Moripe Stadium on 10 February, 2024.

Modiko’s side were last in camp last November, when they travelled to Morocco for two friendly matches in preparation for these qualifiers.

The 2024 FIFA Women’s World Cup will be hosted by the Dominican Republic, from 16 October – 3 November, 2024.
