In September (1st to 9th) 2025, Uganda will host Mozambique and Somalia respectively.

The Cranes will end their campaign with two away fixtures in October, 2025 against Botswana and Algeria respectively.

For starters, the winner of each group will prevail to the World Cup, while the four best group runners-up will participate in play-offs to determine which team will advance to the inter-confederation play-offs.

The 2026 FIFA World Cup will see participation of teams increase from the current 32 to 48 which also consequently leads the increase in number of teams from CAF (Africa) from 5 to 9 or possibly 10 depending on the outcome of the intercontinental playoffs.
