The final pool (Group C) also has three teams including Scandinavian WFC (Rwanda), FAD Club (Djibouti) and hosts Vihiga Queens (Kenya)
The Zonal Qualifiers will kickoff on 17th July to 1st August in Nairobi, Kenya with the Champion earning a slot to represent CECAFA in the inaugural edition in Egypt later this year.
It should be noted that each of the six Zones will have at least a representative at the final tournament with Union of North African Football (UNAF) and West Africa Football Union B (WAFU -B) getting two slots each.
UNAF will get two slots with a team from Egypt (host Nation) and the other going through the Qualifiers.
On the other hand, WAFU-B got two slots because of having the CAF Women Africa Cup of Nations Champions, Nigeria.
Therefore, teams that will reach the final of WAFU- B Qualifiers will make it to the final tournament.
