Eswatini has been drawn with Zambia, Namibia and guest nation Uganda in Group C of the sub-regional competition. The local side has been a prominent team in this tournament for many years and their biggest win in the competition was a 4-0 against Angola in 2019 at the same stadium. Sitsebe’s biggest defeat at international level date back to 1993 at the hands of South Africa’s Banyana Banyana. They were humiliated with a 14-0 scoreline.

Sitsebe would then face COSAFA Women’s Champions guest, Uganda, three days later and finish off their group games with Namibia two days later.
