Must read

The Confederation of East and Central Africa Football Associations (CECAFA) has changed the dates for this year’s edition of the Senior Challenge competition which will be held in Kenya.

The tournament was scheduled to take place from of November 25 to December 9, but will now be played between December 3-17.

Kenya already confirmed the venues which are Kakamega, Kisumu and Nakuru. Kasarani and Machakos have been put on standby just in case the rest of the venues are not ready by kick off.

Last year the regional body failed to organize the Senior Challenge Cup after Sudan and Kenya both pulled out of hosting at the last moment.

Uganda Cranes are the defending champions of the CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup, having defeated Rwanda in the last event held in Ethiopia in 2015.

This time, the nations in the tournament hope to use the Challenge Cup to prepare for the 2018 Africa Nations Championship (CHAN) that will take place in Morocco next year in January.

Ten countries have so far confirmed their participation and these are: Kenya (Hosts), Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Burundi, South Sudan, Zanzibar and guests, Libya and Zimbabwe.
