The 16 qualified teams including hosts, Sudan, will be housed into four groups of four teams.

Ghana, losing finalists at the maiden competition, qualified with Ivory Coast and Niger from Zone West B.

Other participating sides are: Algeria and Tunisia (Northern Zone); Mali and Senegal (Zone West A); Cameroon, Gabon and DR Congo (Central Zone); Uganda and Rwanda (Central-East Zone); Angola, South Africa and Zimbabwe (Southern Zone).

The tournament takes places from 4-25 February, 2011.
