2018 CECAFA U-20 Championship:
- 8th – 22nd September
- To be hosted by Uganda
Uganda will host the 2018 Council of East and Central Africa Football Association (CECAFA) U-20 championships.
The tournament is one of the FIFA Forward programmes that CECAFA is benefiting following the successful completion of the U-17 tournament hosted by Burundi in May.
CECAFA Secretary General Nicholas Musonye confirmed the development via a press conference held in Tanzania during the on-going CECAFA Kagame Cup clubs’ championships.
He also noted that the women Challenge cup as well as the beach soccer events will also take place.
“As CECAFA, we have got a revised calendar to help cater for regional tournaments. So we will have the Under 20 and CECACA beach soccer tournaments held in Uganda in September and August respectively,” Musonye, as quoted by Florsport revealed.
Some of the expected playing fields that will be used to host this tournament include the Star Times Stadium, Lugogo in the heart of Kampala and the Mandela National Stadium, Namboole.
Kenya will host the 2018 CECAFA Senior challenge cup, the second time in row following the 2017 edition.
The 2018 CECAFA Senior Challenge cup will kick off in late November.
