COSAFA have announced that the tournament's U20 hosts, Zambia, is almost ready to host this year’s U20 Championship.

The COSAFA U20 Championship will be staged in Kitwe from December 6-16, with games scheduled for Nkana Stadium and Arthur Davies Stadium.

COSAFA Chief Operations Officer, Sue Destombes said some teams may be accommodated in Ndola, saying Kitwe alone cannot host the 14 nations expected to compete at the tournament.

The Junior Chipolopolo are the defending champions of the annual Southern African youth championship.

“We have not finished our exercise but let’s put it that we are 90 percent there,” said Destombes.

“We are very fortunate that we have got two stadia that are regularly used for Premier League football and CAF Champion League.

“There are very nice facilities in Kitwe but they can’t take all the teams. We may have to put some teams in Ndola.”
