Bayelsa Queens Football Club will depart the country on Sunday ahead of the CAF Women’s Champions League in Morocco.

This was revealed by Preye Yabrifa, Media Officer of the team, who told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that they would no longer go on a West African tour but would travel straight to Morocco.

According to him, “Initially, we planned to go on a playing tour to countries like Togo and Republic of Benin but due to the flood situation in Bayelsa we couldn’t travel as planned.
