Zambia hosts the 2017 CAF Under-20 Africa Cup of Nations from February 26 to March 12. Zambia is in Group A with Egypt, Guinea and Mali to play matches at Heroes Stadium in Lusaka.
Levy Mwanawasa stadium will host Group B involving Cameron, South Africa, Sudan and Senegal. This will be the country’s first ever staging of a CAF tournament.
The top four teams will qualify for the 2017 FIFA U20 World Cup to be held in South Korea from 20th May to 11th June.
The Local Organizing Committee has left no stone unturned to ensure a successful tournament with full support from the government of Zambia to Football Association of Zambia and Zambia Tourism Agency who are part of the Local Organising Committee.
Zambia Tourism Agency sees the tournament as a good platform to expose and market its tourism sector to the large number of visitors.
