Five nations confirm participation in 2018 Cecafa Women’s Championship

Cecafa Women's Senior Challenge Cup 2018

After several postponements, the dates for the 2018 Cecafa Women’s Senior Challenge Cup have been set for 19-27 July in Kigali, Rwanda (fixtures/results updates below).

This year’s edition has attracted only five of the 12 member states, two less than the last edition in 2016.

Reigning Cecafa champions Tanzania headline the nations set to compete in this year’s edition—the third after the 1986 and 2016 editions.

Kilimanjaro Queens will suit up alongside 2016 silver medalists Kenya, 2016 bronze medalists Ethiopia, hosts Rwanda and Uganda.

Burundi and Zanzibar, both of whom were axed in the group stage last time out, have given the 2018 edition a wide berth.
