News out of Nigeria

According to Baseball Nigeria 2020 Project, Nigeria will no longer host the West 2 Olympic Qualifier scheduled for Port Harcourt, Nigeria from March 21 - March 25.

The decision by the World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) was made due to an inability by the Democratic Republic of Congo and Cameroon to fund their trip.

The West 1 and West 2 Olympic Qualifiers will be consolidated to include Ghana, Nigeria, Burkina Faso, Tunisia and Cote d'Ivoire. Togo had previously dropped out for the same reason.

Two teams will now qualify from the group to play in the Africa Cup and Olympic Qualifier in Boksburg, South Africa in May.
