The FUFA Competitions Department has released all fixtures for ‘The FUFA Drum’ to be played among the 16 Provinces in Uganda.
The opening weekend of fixtures for the inaugural tournament played under the theme ‘Celebrating Our Ancestry’ has been set for 24th and 25th of February.
Neighbouring Provinces Busoga and Bugisu have been handed the opportunity for the opening ceremony to be held at a venue yet to be determined by the Organizing Committee who will inspect the venues on Monday 12th February.
“Inspection of pitches that were submitted by the Busoga Province Committee will be conducted today by the Organizing Committee whose Chairman is Rogers Byamukama. We want to hold a memorable opening day ceremony for a young tournament. We are set and looking forward to the kick off as all the 16 provinces will be involved on the opening weekend of action,” said FUFA Communications Manager Ahmed Hussein.
“The Competitions Department has also set 6th October 2018 as the date for the final to be played in Kasese. We believe the Prize money of UGX 100M put aside by FUFA will create more competition during the tournament,” added Hussein.
