CECAFA: Groups, Venues And Fixture Revised

The 2019 CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup local organising committee have altered the initial schedule, however, the kickoff dates remain December 7-19.

Ethiopia pulled out recently and that left only nine nations that will take part.

Consequently, two groups, instead of the initial three have been formed – Group A where Uganda is part, having five countries while B that has defending champions Kenya has four countries.
