Libya and Zimbabwe to grace CECAFA Senior Challenge


Nairobi has been omitted from the venues to host the 2017 East and Central Africa Senior Challenge that starts on November 25 to December 9.

Newly refurbished Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega, Moi Stadium in Kisunu, Afrha Stadium in Nakuru and the Mumias complex will host the competition which will be graced by Libya and Zimbabwe as guest sides.

The last edition edition of the Senior Challenge was staged in Ethiopia in 2015 and won by Uganda.

CECAFA Secretary General Nicholas Musonye at a press briefing on Wednesday said everything is in place to host the competition.

The prize money structure remains the same with the winner pocketing Sh 3.1m (30,000 USD), runner-ups take home Sh 2m (20,000 USD) while third place will go home with Sh 1m (10,000 USD).

Teams arrive on November 22.

“We are determined to have a better and organised competition than we hosted here in 2013,” Musonye told the media.
