Uganda Cranes will join three other nations to play in a pre-CHAN friendly tournament, the Cameroonian Football Federation (FECAFOOT) confirmed.
Uganda received the invitation from the hosts Cameroon, with the other participants being Zambia and Niger. FECAFOOT announced that the teams are expected to arrive on December 29.
The tournament will be held in Cameroon capital, Yaoundé from January 1st to 7th, 2021.
The four nations will use the tournament to prepare themselves for the CHAN 2020 finals that are expected to run from January 16th to February 7th 2021 across four cities in Cameroon.
However, FUFA hasn’t yet officially confirmed their participation in the mini-tournament.
Uganda is pitted in Group C alongside Morocco, Togo and Rwanda for the CHAN tournament.
Unlike the African Cup of Nations (AFCON), the competing national teams in CHAN must be composed of players playing in their domestic league.
