Team coach George Lutalo told Fufa media before the 31 players left Kisasi for Njeru on Sunday morning that the move will help his girls get enough time to prepare for championship.

“After two weeks of training in Kampala, we are relocating to Njeru where we can have enough time to train well and better. And with the League coming to an end on Friday, the team will be fully available and thus help in preparing better.” Lutalo told www.fufa.co.ug.

Uganda is in Group A alongside Rwanda, Burundi and Djibouti.

The tournament will be played at FUFA Technical Centre, between 1st -11th June 2022.

The Crested Cranes will also use the Cecafa championship to get ready for the 2022 Women Africa Cup of Nations that will take place in July. Uganda was drawn to Group A alongside hosts Morocco, Senegal and Burkina Faso.
