South Africa to host Cosafa 2019

South Africa are the hosts of the Council of Southern Africa Football Associations (COSAFA) Senior Challenge Cup 2019's edition.

The tournament will be played in the South Africa's city of Durban starting on 25 May, and ending on 8 June (2019).

COSAFA President Dr Phillip Chiyangwa had this to say on the development:

“We are delighted to host what we believe will be the best ever COSAFA Cup in Durban, a city steeped in sporting history with the most magnificent facilities,

“Apart from the prestige of being crowned regional champions, there is also much more for competing teams to play for this year, with not only the Africa Cup of Nations finals Egypt, but also the 2020 African Nations Championship qualifiers in July and August.

“At COSAFA we pride ourselves in the opportunities we give our nations to compete at the highest level, and to help develop our teams for continental action.

“We extend our warmest thanks to SAFA and the eThekwini Municipality for partnering with us on this event and we are sure that all the teams will derive great benefit from their stay in South Africa.”

Cosafa Cup 2019 is largely understood to be a preparation tournament for the five Southern Africa's soccer teams, Angola, Madagascar, Namibia, South Africa, and Zimbabwe which will be going to take part in the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt from June 21-July 19 (2019).
