Egypt withdraws from 2015 African Games

Egyptian fans will not get to see their teams play at the African Games

Egypt has withdrawn its men's Under-23 team and women's senior team from the 2015 African Games, which will be held from 6-18 September in Brazzaville.

The rules state that the Organising Committee could replace a team with the opponent it eliminated.

However, Senegal (Women) and Burundi (Men) decided not to take up a spot because of the short notice period.

It means both the men's and women's competition will have one group of three teams and one group of four.

Women

Group A - Congo, Nigeria, Tanzania, Cote d'Ivoire

Group B - Cameroon, Ghana, South Africa

Men

Group A - Congo, Sudan, Zimbabwe, Burkina Faso

Group B - Ghana, Senegal, Nigeria.
