The COSAFA Men’s Under-17 Championship will be played for a fourth year in a row in Blantyre, Malawi from October 11-20, the most consistent period of tournaments in its history after a nine-year hiatus between 2007 and 2016.
All three of those tournaments were played in Mauritius, but the competition now switches to Malawi where it will be staged for the second time.
Eight sides will enter the 2019 edition, namely Angola, Botswana, Comoros, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa and Zambia.
To find out form, here is how these sides have fared in the last three competitions.
