Kenya lands Tanzania as CHAN qualification schedule changes

After the East African derby at the 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON), Kenya and Tanzania are set to face off again, this time in the qualifiers for the 2020 African Nations Championships (CHAN).

Kenya was initially scheduled to face Burundi in the first round of the qualifiers, with Tanzania drawn to take on Sudan but following the move to strip Ethiopia of the hosting rights, and the country being drafted in the qualifiers, came a change of fixtures.

First leg in Dar

The opening leg of the tie will be staged in Dar es Salaam on Saturday 27 July and the second leg in Nairobi, Kenya on Sunday 4 August.

The winner of this tie on aggregate, will face the winner in the clash pitting Djibouti against Ethiopia.


In the meeting at AFCON, Kenya’s Harambee Stars staged a great comeback to beat Tanzania 3 – 2.

Kenya coach Sebastien Migne had already named the CHAN provisional team ahead of Harambee Stars’ departure to France for the pre-AFCON camp.
