CECAFA: Groups Revised As Tusker Pulls Out

Kenya premier league giants Tusker FC has pulled out of the 2021 Cecafa Kagame Cup that is scheduled to kick off between August 1-15th in Dar es Salam Tanzania.

The Kenyan Giants had confirmed their participation in the regional tournament but in the surprise turn of events, they have pulled out in the last hour.

And the CECAFA Secretariat has reverted to come up with new fixtures. The teams have been re-grouped into two groups of four teams.

Uganda Premier League champions Express FC is now pooled in Group A alongside Atlabara FC of South Sudan, Young Africans of Tanzania and guests Nyasa Big Bullets of Malawi.

Defending champions KCCA has been placed in Group B alongside Burundi champions Le Messager Ngozi, Azam FC of Tanzania and Zanzibar’s KMKM FC.

Express FC will open up their quest against Atlabara FC on 1st August in the opening fixture while defending champions KCCA will begin their title defence account against Tanzania’s Azam FC the following day.

KCCA are the defending champions having beaten Azam FC by 1-0 in 2019 Kigali Rwanda, thanks to a Mustafa Kizza strike.
