Cecafa changes date for draws



Tusker Cecafa Cup draws meant to be held on November 8 in Kampala have been pushed ahead by four days.

The tournament that runs from November 24 to December 8 at Kampala’s Mandela National Stadium, Namboole, will now have its draws conducted on 12th next month.

“The fixtures will be released on 12th November, not 8th as we had earlier arranged,” Rogers Mulindwa, Fufa publicist and Cecafa media officer, told the media in Kampala on Wednesday without divulging much details.

Mulindwa added: “We shall communicate the venue in our next press conference. As the local organizing committee in Kampala we have already embarked on a number of issues including accommodation and the rest with our sponsors, the East Africa Breweries.”

When the tournament kicks off, Uganda will not only be looking to defending the title but to winning it a record breaking 13th time.
