Zambia Army promotes Copper Queen for winning bronze at WAFCON 2022

The Copper Queens of Zambia have been promoted by the country’s army after they won bronze at the 2022 Africa Women Cup of Nations in Morocco.

Zambia defeated Nigeria in the 3rd place match to win bronze, and some of the ladies who were soldiers in the army were promoted.


The ladies also qualified for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup scheduled to be held in Australia and New Zealand.

They only lost one match in the course of the tournament, losing to eventual winners South Africa in the semi-final of the tournament.

A statement said:

“Army Commander Lieutenant General Sitali Dennis Alibuzwi has promoted Green Buffaloes Women Club players who featured in the just ended Women Africa Cup of Nations in Morocco where the Copper Queens qualified to the World Cup and won the third place.”

He assured the players of Command’s support in the TotalEnergies CAF Women’s Championship League/COSAFA Qualifiers to be held in South Africa this month.

Giving a vote of thanks on behalf of the newly promoted soldiers, Zambia Women Football Team Captain Banda Barbara, who was promoted to the rank of Sergeant, thanked the Army Commander for recognising their hard work.
