Welcome to teams from Algeria and Angola, who joined the MUPC qualification process for the first time this year as part of the expanding Premier Cup programme in Africa.
Algiers Youth Sportsclub and Angola's Nzakimuena FC both won their national finals and will compete in the African Qualification Tournament at Nike EHQ, Netherlands on 16/17 June 2009.
They will be joined by the Right to Dream Academy, who won their national tournament and will represent Ghana for the second year in succession (2008 Africa Champions and 5th Place finish in last year's MUPC World Finals).
Egypt's ENPPI secured the final spot in Holland after comfortable 2:0 victories over both Wadi Degia and host team Heliopolis Sports Club at the Premier Cup Egypt Country Finals in Cairo.
Good luck to all competing teams - we look forward to welcoming the Champions of Africa to Manchester later this year!
