THE Warriors will take part in a four-team tournament involving Zambia, Kenya and hosts Malawi during the upcoming Fifa international window.

The national associations believe the tournament will help in the preparations for the resumption of 2026 Fifa World Cup qualifiers. In a statement yesterday, Zifa said the Under-20 teams will also take part during the same period:

“The first tournament will feature the senior men’s national teams (A-teams) of our four countries. “This tournament presents a valuable opportunity for our national teams to face quality opposition in preparation for 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, these U20 tournaments will aid in developing and exposing elite youth talent while preparing teams for upcoming 2024 AFCON Under 20 qualifiers later this year.

“Our four nations are committed to collaborating for the advancement of football development and transformation across the region. “We believe hosting these joint tournaments will build camaraderie between 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 to offer. “Further details on match schedules and tournament logistics will be announced in due course.”
