Harambee Stars draw Ethiopia in Cecafa opener

15 November 2013, 15:45

Nairobi - Hosts Kenya will play African World Cup finalists Ethiopia in the opening match of the CECAFA Senior Challenge cup in Nairobi on November 27, the organizers said on Friday.

The two countries, which are regular participants in the annual football tournament for national teams in the East and Central African region, are drawn in Group A alongside Zanzibar and newcomers South Sudan.

Defending champions, Uganda are grouped with Eritrea, Rwanda and Sudan in Group C.

Former African champions, Zambia have been invited as a guest team, and are drawn in Group B along with Burundi, Tanzania, and Somalia.

This will be the first time Kenya, losing finalists to Uganda in Kampala last year, will be hosting the tournament since 2009, with the opening rounds matches being played in the capital Nairobi and the eastern town of Machakos.

The finals will be held on December 12, to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Kenya's independence celebrations.
