Will Malawi host COSAFA under 17?


The Council for Southern African Football Association (COSAFA) has until Friday 3rd July 2020 to receive a confirmation from Football Association of Malawi (FAM) on whether it will host the 2020 edition of the regional under 17 youth champions.

COSAFA scheduled the under 17 youth tournament to take place from July 22 to August 1st in Malawi after it successfully hosted the same tournament last year but with football suspended in most countries within the COSAFA region due to the coronavirus pandemic, the dates for the tournament are likely to be changed as FAM plans to kick off its 2020/21 season in August.

Mauritius failed to host this year’s under 17 women’s championship in April while South Africa did not host the men’s senior championship which was to be played in June due to coronavirus.

Zambia is the defending champions of the under 17 youth champions which they won last year after defeating Mozambique 2-0.
