All roads will this weekend lead to Mandela National Stadium – the venue for the much-anticipated Airtel-Masaza Cup tournament finals – where local teams Gomba and Singo will battle for the trophy and the right to be called the best football team in Buganda.
Gomba qualified for the final after defeating the defending champions Buddu in a thrilling and dramatic semi-final game that ended in penalty shootouts at fully packed Masaka Recreational Grounds.
Singo defeated opponents Busiro 1-0 in the first leg and registered a 1 – 1 tie in the second leg, automatically pushing them into the finals.
The exciting finals will also see the tournament’s leading scorers – Jjanjali Joseph from Gomba with 8 goals and Mukwala Steven from Singo with 8 goals – try to outclass each other in a bid to become the tournament’s top scorer.
Commenting about the upcoming Airtel-Masaza Cup tournament finals, Airtel Uganda Head of Brand and Communication, Remmie Kisakye, said; “Hundreds of people have been turning up to support their teams during the games and I encourage them to come out in large numbers and watch these two top teams play.”
“At Airtel Uganda, we aim to make a positive impact on the lives of Ugandans, not only through our excellent telecommunications services but also by investing in activities that bring people from all different walks of life together. Football is one example of those activities,” she added.
Kisakye concluded by thanking the Buganda Kingdom for the ‘good cooperation’ and wishing the teams in the finals ‘good luck’.
