Cecafa Releases Kagame Cup Draw

In a draw held virtually on Tuesday, the eleven time Kenyan champions were paired up in Group B with Azam (Tanzania) and Albatara (South Sudan).

Cecafa Secretary General Auka Gecheo confirmed that the tournament would go on as scheduled, but will be played behind closed doors to curb the spread of the deadly coronavirus pandemic.

In other groups of the regional tournament, guest team Nyasa Big Bullets from Malawi were placed in Group C with Tanzanian record champions Yanga and Express from Uganda.

Defending champions KCCA from Uganda, Le Messenger (Burundi) and KMKM (Zanzibar) headline Group A.

In a recent interview, FKF President Nick Mwendwa explained to Goal why they had settled on Tusker and not Gor Mahia.

We are now playing a new Kagame Cup since the previous one was canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, so the time Gor were to represent the country has been overtaken by events, and instead, Tusker will go for the competition.

Mwendwa told Goal

Cecafa wanted a name of the team to represent Kenya and we settled on Tusker because they are topping the 18-team table but we will also give an official statement to clarify on the same position soon.

Full List

Group A: KCCA (Uganda), Le Messanger Ngozi FC (Burundi), KMKM FC (Zanzibar).

Group B: AZAM FC ( Tanzania), Atlabara (South Sudan), Tusker (Kenya).

Group C: Yanga FC (Tanzania), Nyasa Big Bullets (Malawi), Express FC (Uganda).
