The Ethiopia Walia Ibex soccer team will meet the Seychelles national football team in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier first round match on September 5.

Seychelles is a world leader in sustainable eco-tourism which attracts a number of visitors every year. “Ethiopian Airlines has always been a proud carrier of Ethiopian athletes and the national team to wherever they travel around the world for sporting tournaments. I hope that the Walias and their fans coming to Seychelles will have a spectacular two-day stay in the ‘Paradise of Earth,’ Seychelles,”

Seychelles has always welcomed sports teams and their fans, and the coming Ethiopian delegation will enjoy a great football match, but also they will see how nice Seychelles is as a tourism destination for their future holidays," said Minister St.Ange.
