All three clubs, Braves of Customs Male Side and Female side and Tema Youth have withdrawn from the tournament due to unknown reason in certain aspects and financial reasons in other aspects.

Braves Male side won last season's league trophy and successfully defended it by beating last season's finalist Tema Youth 67-52. Clubs from West African nations including Burkina Faso, Nigeria and Mali are competing in the tournament.
