  The 2021 CECAFA U-20 Women’s Championship will take place August 17-28th in Uganda.

Auka Gacheo, the Executive Director of the Confederation of African Football (CECAFA) told Uganda Radio Network that FUFA had eventually confirmed dates when they will host the regional tournament.

“We have had discussions with all the five Member Associations that will host tournaments this year and they have selected dates,” added Gacheo.

Ethiopia will host the opening tournament in the region with the CECAFA U-23 Men’s Challenge Cup taking place July 3-18th in the town of Bahir Dar.

During the CECAFA meeting held in Rabat. Morocco last month before the Confederation of African Football (CAF) General Assembly, members agreed that the Senior Challenge Cup is played among U-23 players like it is for the Olympics qualifying format.

The CECAFA Kagame Club Championship will take center stage in Tanzania between August 1-5th, while Kenya will host the zonal qualifiers for the inaugural CAF Women’s Champions League between July 17th to August 1st.

The season will climax with the CECAFA Senior Women’s Challenge Cup slated for December 17-31st in Djibouti.

Because of the challenges of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) which affected sports, CECAFA only managed to organize two tournaments last year in Tanzania (CECAFA Boys U-20 Challenge Cup) and the CECAFA Boys U-17 Challenge Cup in Rwanda.
