The Football Associations of Kenya, Malawi, Zambia, and Zimbabwe are pleased to announce that our four nations have agreed to hold joint football tournaments during the upcoming FIFA international window between 18-26 March 2024 in Lilongwe, Malawi.

The first tournament will feature our four countries’ senior men’s national teams (A-teams). This tournament presents a valuable opportunity for our national teams to face quality opposition in preparation for the upcoming 2026 FIFA World Cup and 2025 AFCON qualifying campaigns.

Additionally, a concurrent youth tournament for our U20 national teams will take place during the same period. By bringing together the best young players from across our countries, this U20 tournament will aid in developing and exposing elite youth talent while preparing teams for the upcoming 2024 AFCON Under-20 qualifiers later this year.

Our four nations are committed to collaborating to advance football development and transformation across the region. We believe hosting these joint tournaments will build camaraderie among our nations, provide high-level competition for our players, and elevate youth football programs across Kenya, Malawi, Zambia and, Zimbabwe

We look forward to hosting exciting tournaments that showcase the very best talent our countries have. Further details on match schedules and tournament logistics will be announced in due course.
