Uganda will host the 2019 regional CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup.
“We held a meeting in Addis Ababa on Monday with members of the Council for East and Central African Football Associations and Uganda allowed to host the Challenge Cup,” said Nicholas Musonye, the Secretary General of CECAFA.
Last year Kenya withdrew at the last moment from hosting the Senior Challenge Cup because of financial challenges.
“Presidents of Federations and Cecafa have agreed that we shall have seven Championships this year. The members have made it clear which tournaments they will host,” he added.
Musonye made it clear that Eritrea has accepted to host the U-17 tournament, while the Cecafa Kagame Club Championship will take place in Rwanda and the Cecafa Women’s Championship in Tanzania.
“The hosts for the
other competitions will be communicated,” he added.
Last year Cecafa only managed to stage the U-17 Championship in Djibouti and the Women’s Championship in Rwanda.
