By press time, a technical meeting of the Confederation of African Volleyball was yet to conduct draws of how teams will play each other.

Speaking to Times Sport, head Coach Benon Mugisha Barayavuga said that he expects a tough outing for his team but vowed to fight his way into the last four.

"Our aim is to reach the semi-final stage but considering our opponents, it will be a tough campaign," he said before adding, "We have confidence in the players and I believe they can do better because of experience and exposure gained from training," Mugisha said.

APR and Rwanda Energy Group (REG) volleyball clubs will represent the country in the competition which will include some of the biggest volleyball clubs on the continent.
