2022 quarter finalists, Uganda were drawn against the game’s fastest growing nation, Tanzania. The CECAFA Beach Soccer giants will now fight the slot in the forthcoming game’s continental championship, the two neighbours have met before in the COPA Dar Es Salaam where tournament hosts, Tanzania managed to win the all ties before 2019 but Uganda also have a pedigree on the continent (AFCON) as they have taken part in the two consecutive tournaments, 2020 finished 5th and then 2022. Uganda have also gained experience from participating in the COSAFA Beach Soccer Cup.

A total of 14 nations will be engaged in the qualifiers set to take place over a two-legged format to decide the 7 nations that will join tournament hosts, Egypt at the finals this summer.

The first leg of the qualifiers will take place between 19 – 21 July, with the second and final leg scheduled for 26 – 28 July.

Reigning African champions Senegal will kick off the qualifiers against Guinea who are earmarking a first CAF Beach Soccer AFCON appearance.

Other key encounters on the cards to look out for include a west African duel between Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire, while Burundi and Malawi will lock horns in an East African battle for qualification.

Seychelles, hosts of the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup next year will be looking at securing a place in Egypt ahead of hosting the global showpiece in Africa for the very first time.
