Posted on Jul 11 2018

Rwanda’s national Under-17 team, Junior Wasps, will kick-off their campaign for the 2019 Africa U17 Cup of Nations qualifiers, Zonal Qualifiers for CECAFA region against Sudan on August 11, 2018 in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

Rwanda has been pooled in Group A alongside hosts Tanzania, Burundi, Somalia and Sudan in Group A while Group B is composed of Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, Djibouti and South Sudan.

The Junior Wasps will kick-off their campaign against Sudan on August 11 at the National Stadium.

They will then take on Burundi on August 13 in Chamazi, then Somalia on August 16 before finalizing their group stage campaign against hosts Tanzania on August 21 at National Stadium in Dar es Salaam.

Addressing the media on Tuesday in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, the Cecafa Secretary Nicholas Musonye said, “The CAF U-17 Zonal qualifiers for the CECAFA region will be held in August and hosts Tanzania are ready to host the qualifying tournament. Participating teams are urged to prepare well such that we can be able to have strong representatives in the final tournament next year,”

The overall winner of the two-week competition will join seven other teams at the tournament to be hosted by Tanzania next year.

The Confederation of African Football (Caf) said in July last year that the qualifying competition will be split into regions.

Apart from the hosts, each of the six zones receives one spot in the final tourney and the zone of the defending champions gets an additional spot.

Mali from the West-A Zone is the defending champions.
