Ahead of the inaugural CECAFA Under 15 tournament, Kenya have been pooled in Group A alongside Burundi, Somalia, and Eritrea.
The event which is sponsored by FIFA Forward Programme initiative will be the first Under 15 tournament to be staged in Africa. The tournament will be used by the CECAFA region to prepare for the Under 17 AFCON qualifiers that start early next year.
Group B has Uganda, South Sudan, Ethiopia and Rwanda while Group C only has three teams in the name of Tanzania, Djibouti and Sudan. Kenya will set their campaign rolling against Somalia on Saturday 17th August in the capital Asmara, before Burundi and hosts Eritrea clash later on.
