The Uganda national under 17 team have drawn hosts Tanzania and two time winners Nigeria in group A of the CAF U17 championships.

Angola who have been at the tournament 3 times [ 1997, 1999 and 2017] complete the tricky group. The Cubs will be playing in their debut edition.

Tanzania opens up the tournament against the Golden Eaglets of Nigeria who won it in 2001 and 2007.

Uganda’s first match will be against Angola on the same date.

The top four teams of the tournament will qualify for the FIFA U-17 World Cup to be hosted in Peru as Africa’s representatives.
