The 2002 Women’s African Football Championship was the fifth edition of the African Women’s Championship (now known as the Africa Women Cup of Nations), the biennial international football championship organised by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) for the women’s national teams of Africa. It was held in Nigeria between 7 December and 20 December 2002.

The tournament determined the CAF’s two qualifiers for the 2003 FIFA Women’s World Cup — the winner Nigeria and the runner-up Ghana. Nigeria won its fifth title, beating Ghana 2–0 in the final.
