Host Cameroon will begin their quest for a first ever Total African Nations Championship (CHAN) title against Zimbabwe when the tournament kicks off on 4 April 2020.
The Indomitable Lions will take on the Warriors in the tournament’s opening match at the Stade Ahmadou Ahidjo in Yaounde, the venue that will also host the tournament’s decisive match.
The tie will precede the fixture pitting Mali and Burkina Faso which will be played at 8pm local time.
The homers will play all their home matches in Yaounde, with the seaside city of Limbe and Douala, the other venues.
Defending champions Morocco who were drawn in Group C will kick off their title defense against debutants Togo on the third day of competition at the Stade de la Reunification in Douala.
This game will be played before a highly anticipated East Africa derby pitting Uganda and neighbors Rwanda. Current Uganda Cranes head coach Jonathan McKinstry is a former Rwanda boss, and the current Amavubi tactician Vincent Mashami was his assistant during his tenure.
The Stade de Limbe in Western Cameroon which hosted the 2016 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations will also host matches and its opening tie on April 7, the fourth day of competition, will pit Zambia against Tanzania in a Group D early kick off clash before Guinea take on Namibia in the late kick off.
The group stage matches are scheduled to be played between April 4-15 to pave way for the knockout matches. Yaounde and Limbe will host one quarter final tie each while the remaining two will be staged in Douala. The four last eight matches will be played on April 17 and 18.
Douala and Limbe will then host one semi-final match each, on April 21 and 22. Douala will also host the third placed match on April 24 while Yaounde will host the finale on April 25.
