12 January 2024 – The South African U17 Women’s National Team will report for camp on Monday, 15 January 2024 to continue their preparations for the 2024 U17 FIFA Women’s World Cup qualifiers against Ethiopia.

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

Bantwana were last in camp last November when they travelled to Morrocco for two friendly matches in preparation for these qualifiers.

South Africa will take on Ethiopia in the second round of qualifiers, in a two-legged affair, as they try to secure a ticket in what will be their third participation at the FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup tournament.

South Africa have previously qualified for the 2010 and 2018 editions of the global competition.

Coach Ntabeleng Modiko has called up a preliminary squad of 35 players that will camp from 15 -25 January.

Thereafter, the final squad will be announced to commence preparations for the away leg in Ethiopia on 2 February 2024.

The return leg of the qualifiers will be played at Lucas Moripe Stadium on 10 February 2024.
