Ghana have been billed to play Cote d’Ivoire in the 2016 African Nations Championship (CHAN) final round qualifier for Zone West B. 

In a game that will evoke memories of the recent Afcon final, the Local Black Stars will host their Ivorian counterparts in the first leg on June 21 and the return leg on the weekend of 28-30 August.

The draw was done on Sunday for this, the fourth edition of the tournament which first started in 2009, where Ghana won silver. 

Since then, Ghana has been in every CHAN.

Team Ghana's last outing came in South Africa ended in a second placed finish to eventual winners, Libya.
