Nyasa Big Bullets will start their Cecafa Kagame Interclub Cup campaign on Wednesday against Tanzania Premier League giants Young Africans (Yanga) at Benjamin Mkapa Stadium in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
Bullets’ last Group C game will be played on Friday against Uganda Premier League champions Express FC at the same venue.
In an interview yesterday, Nyasa Big Bullets chief administration officer Albert Chigoga confirmed the fixtures in an interview yesterday.
The tournament will kick off this Sunday with defending champions KCCA FC of Uganda taking on KMKM Sports Club of Zanzibar in Group A.
Bullets, who are participating at the tournament as guests, are expected to leave for Tanzania on Sunday.
Nine teams will participate in the tournament following the withdrawal of Rwanda’s APR FC due to travel restrictions following the Covid-19 third wave in that country.
Group A has KCCA FC, Le Messenger Ngozi of Burundi and KMKM SC.
Azam FC of Tanzania, Altabara FC of South Sudan and Tusker from Kenya complete group B.
The three group winners will qualify for the semi-finals alongside one best runner-up.
Soccer analyst Felix Ngamanya Sapao described the Bullets’ group as tough.
“I would say it’s a group of death. Yanga and Express are no ordinary teams,” he said.
