The tournament which will attract 11 teams will run September 21st to October 5th in Gulu and at the Fufa Technical Centre in Njeru.

According to the adjusted fixture three games will take place on September 22nd with Kenya taking on Zanzibar, while Ethiopia battle Tanzania in Group B matches. Burundi will also take on South Sudan in a Group C tie on the same day.

Zanzibar will now play their second game on September 24th against Ethiopia before the last group game against Tanzania on September 26th.

Musonye said they decided that three games will take place in Njeru on every match day. The group stage will climax on September 26th before the quarter finals are played between September 29-30.
