New dates for the CAF Women’s Champions League Qualifiers in the CECAFA Zone have been confirmed by the regional football governing body.

The Qualifiers were initially supposed to get underway on 17th this month but these were postponed, citing the surge in the COVID-19 cases across different countries.

It is now confirmed that the CECAFA Zonal Qualifiers will now take place from 7th -21st August in Nairobi, Kenya.

With Rwanda’s Champions Scandinavian WFC withdrawing, only 8 teams are left to compete for the lone slot to the final tournament where only the Zonal Champions represent.

It is not yet clear whether fresh draws will be made to divide the 8 teams into two groups of 4 each.

Scandinavian WFC had already been pitted in Group C alongside hosts Vihiga Queens and FAD Club from Djibouti.

Uganda’s representative Lady Doves, who won the FUFA Super League, are in Group A alongside Tanzania’s Simba Queens and Burundi’s PVP FC.

While Group B has Commercial Bank FC (Ethiopia), Yei Joint Stars FC (South Sudan), and New Generation (Zanzibar).
