Cecafa: Uganda opens against Zanzibar

Coach Bobby Williamson of Uganda Cranes
Andy Mwesigwa and Vincent Kayizzi are both expected in Dar es salaam, Tanzania

The Council of East and Central Africa Football Association (CECAFA) has released the fixtures for this year’s senior challenge cup parading the Uganda Cranes against long time rivals Zanzibar in the Group B opening match on November 25.

The Cranes game to be played at 4pm in the National stadium of Dar es salaam will follow an earlier fixture between Burundi and Somalia at 2pm on the same ground. The official opening ceremony is slated for Saturday November 26 where hosts Tanzania take on Rwanda in an anticipated thriller at 4pm.

While releasing the fixtures at Cecafa head offices in Nairobi this Wednesday afternoon, Musonye urged the teams to respect the fixture and avoid late coming. “We shall be very strict with time management, the games are live on super sport and we don’t want to let down our partners” Musonye said. He added that the top two teams from each group and the best two losers from all the three groups will qualify to the quarter finals. Below is the detailed fixture.
