Nigeria will play host to Madagascar, Botswana and Ghana during the competition, which stakeholders say is an opportunity for the country to increase the aware for rugby across the federation.

The hosts’ team, Black Stallions, will aim for a ticket to the next stage as Silver Cup champions, as the Pool A winner will meet the top team from Pool B, which will be hosted by Cote d’Ivoire from 15 to 23 June, with their opponents coming from Senegal, Mauritius and Rwanda.

The winner of Africa’s second tier tournament will gain promotion to the top-tier Gold Cup, where they stand a chance to earn a slot at the Rugby World Cup in 2023.
