COSAFA inspect Kitwe venues for Cosafa U20 Cup

Sports COSAFA inspect Kitwe venues for Cosafa U20 Cup

COSAFA say Zambia is almost ready to host this year’s Under-20 Championship.

The COSAFA Under-20 Championship will be staged in Kitwe from December 6-16 with games scheduled for Nkana Stadium and Arthur Davies Stadium.

“We have not finished our exercise but let’s put it that we are 90 percent there,” COSAFA Chief Operations Officer Sue Destombes said in Kitwe after inspecting proposed facilities.

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

She revealed some teams maybe accommodated in Ndola saying Kitwe alone cannot host the 14 nations expected to compete at the tournament.

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

Zambia are the defending champions of the annual Southern African youth championship.
