Only the top team in each group, after three rounds of matches, will advance to the semifinals along with the best runner-up as the 12 competing sides seek to be crowned champions.

The matches are being played in the COSAFA zone.

Each of the five remaining Zones - CECAFA, UNAF, UNIFFAC, WAFU A, and WAFU B - will organise their regional qualifiers featuring teams from the zone.

From mid-July to September, the qualifiers will take off from Mauritius (COSAFA) - currently going on, through Equatorial Guinea (UNIFFAC), Tanzania (CECAFA), Tunisia (UNAF), Niger (WAFU B) before terminating in Senegal (WAFU A).

The winner of each zonal competition qualifies for the final tournament, with the exception of the zone of the previous winner, entitled to two slots. Since Mali won the title in 2017, WAFU A will qualify two teams for next year’s African Under-17 Championship that will be held in Tanzania.

The COSAFA Under-17 Championships serve as a qualifier for the 2019 African Under-17 Championships that will be played in Tanzania, which in turn is a qualifier for the FIFA Under-17 World Cup in Peru later that year.
