West Sudan Region Of Darfur Will Replace Ethiopian Capital As Cecafa Club Tournament Host
Published May 2, 2013
The Council for East and Central Africa FAs (Cecafa) has "confirmed that the troubled Darfur region in western Sudan will host the 2013 Cecafa Club Championships in June," according to Andrew Jackson Oryada of the BBC. The football body said that "Democratic Republic of Congo side St. Eloi Lupopo will take part in the event." Cecafa Secretary General Nicholas Musonye "is in Darfur inspecting facilities and has reported that the region is 90% ready to host the event, but for only two of the three groups." Musonye: "Two football stadiums in Al Fashir -- Al Nuggaa [capacity 15,000] and Al Fashir [45,000]" are ready. He added that "the hosting of the tournament had been switched from the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa to Sudan because Ethiopia was not ready to stage the event" (BBC, 4/29).
