It sounds strange but true. With less than six months to the annual Kagame Cup Club Championship, the Council for East and Central African Football Associations (CECAFA) is yet to identify a host nation.

This was revealed by the body’s General Secretary Nicholas Musonye to Mtnfootball.com adding that the council has moved the championship to August from the usual June.

“We are working around to see that we get a host nation,” Musonye told Mtnfootball.com before adding that CECAFA has spoken to countries like Sudan and Rwanda to host the competition.

“We are speaking to some nations like Rwanda and Sudan to host the event. We had wanted to have the event around April, but some clubs are still busy with the Champions League and Confederations Cup and therefore August is the best option,” added Musonye. 

The Kagame Club Championship is sponsored by the Rwanda President, Paul Kagame, and attracts league champions in the CECAFA region and some invited clubs.

KCC FC who last won the trophy in 1978 will represent Uganda at the competition. 

Burundi’s Vital’O are the defending champions after winning the trophy last year. 

SC Villa (three times), KCC FC and Police FC are the only Ugandan side to have won the competition.
