In order to undertake preparations, the EFF had requested 50 million birr from the government. The Walias will play in a friendly game against Morocco’s CHAN team.

Wubetu Abate, Walia’s coach, has selected 28 players to participate in the upcoming game. Two participants, though, left for personal reasons.

The Walias began their regular preparation following the suspension of the Ethiopian Premier League (EPL) on December 26, 2022.
