The two leading teams in the U17 qualifiers that will be staged in Rwanda will qualify to represent the zone in the Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) U17 tournament.
The junior Afcon tournament will be held in Morocco in 2021.
Ethiopia are the other opponents in a group that is expected to be the toughest especially taking into account the recent rivalry between Kenya and the Uganda Cubs.

The championship has been scheduled to take place between December 13 to December 28 in Rwanda where the Cecafa Kagame Club Cup was held in 2019.
The top team in each group and the best runners-up will qualify for the semi-finals.
Cecafa U17 Groups:
