2013 CECAFA Cup

The CECAFA Cup is the oldest football tournament in Africa. A FIFA competition, it includes national teams from the Council for East and Central Africa Football Associations (CECAFA). There is an anomaly on national teams in the case of Tanzania. The latter nation fields two teams, Tanzania and Zanzibar. In 2005 and 2006, the tournament was sponsored by the Ethiopian-Saudi businessman Sheikh Mohammed Al Amoudi, and was dubbed the Al Amoudi Senior Challenge Cup.[1] It is the successor competition of the Gossage Cup, held 37 times from 1926 until 1966, and the East and Central African Senior Challenge Cup, held 7 times between 1965 and 1971.

In August 2012, CECAFA signed a sponsorship deal worth US$450,000 with East African Breweries to have the cup renamed to the CECAFA Tusker Challenge Cup.[2]

Previous winners[edit]

Gossage Cup (1926–1966) and Challenge Cup (1967–1971)[edit]

The Gossage Cup was contested between Kenya, Uganda, Tanganyika and Zanzibar. The first match was played between the Kenyan and Ugandan national teams in May 1926, with Kenya winning 2–1 in a replay.[3][4] Tanganyika participated since 1945 and Zanzibar since 1949. The tournament was sponsored by the soap manufacturer Gossage, owned by the British Lever Brothers. In 1967, the competition was renamed to the East and Central African Senior Challenge Cup.[5]

CECAFA Cup[edit]

With the formation of CECAFA in 1973, the tournament was renamed to the CECAFA Cup.
