Musonye noted that the regional association had failed to organize previous competitions because of lack of funds but assured that everything is in place this year.

 “We are doing it this year,” he assured adding that “The problem is usually the funds and this time we have secured the money in good time so there will be no disappointments. The games will go on as planned.”

The tournament will be funded by FUFA grants and Azam TV, the broadcasting sponsors. The money will cater for all the expenses including team's air tickets and accormodation.

Tanzania's Azam are the tournament's defending champions.
