Vihiga Queens have been moved to Group B of the Cecafa zonal qualifiers for the inaugural Confederation of Africa Football (Caf) Women’s Champions League.
Initially, the former FKF Women Premier League champions were pooled in Group “C” alongside Rwanda’s Scandinavian and Djibouti’s FAD Club.
However, Scandinavian pulled out of the competition due to Covid-19 restrictions, forcing Cecafa to conduct a mini-draw to find new opponents for Vihiga and FAD.
Vihiga have now been moved to Group B and will now face Commercial Bank of Ethiopia and South Sudan’s Yei Joint Stars.
FAD have been pooled in Group “A” which also has Uganda’s Lady Dove FC, Burundi’s PVP FC and Tanzania’s Simba Queens.
The winner of the Cecafa Zonal qualifiers will clinch the sole ticket to the Caf Women’s Champions League reserved for the region.
Vihiga’s opening match in the qualifiers will be against Commercial Bank of Ethiopia on August 28.
