The inaugural tournament is to help the region prepare for the Under 17 AFCON qualifiers that start early next year.

It will also help reduce on age-cheating in the under-age group tournaments in the Eastern region.

The 2019 event has been sponsored by the FIFA Forward Programme initiative.

The final will be graced by the President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), Ahmad Ahmad on Friday 30th August at the Asmara Stadium.
