“This year’s edition of the Busoga Masaza cup will kick off on 8th July  with Bunhole Bunanumba taking on Bunha and we are expecting his royal highness William Wilberforce Nadiope to grace the occasion.”

The minister also introduced a new sponsorship package worth UGX 90 million from Haojue

“We have agreed on some changes with immediate effect, active players in the first and second division league will still not be eligible but even those who once featured in any of the above divisions will not be allowed.”

“Each chiefdom will also be required to register at least five players who are 18 years and below in their 25 man squad. No chiefdom will be approved to participate if they don’t comply with the above. And finally each chiefdom is to avail two venues as proposed home grounds for inspection, then our technical team will approve the most suitable.”

Teams have been grouped in four groups namely Kagulu, Mawembe, Bukowe and Nendha group. The four teams that reached the semi finals in the previous edition where seeded in different pots and the rest were drawn to each of the four groups. 

Defending champions Bukooli Namayingo are in Nendha group alongside Budiope, Bunha and Bunhole Bunanumba while last year’s first runners Kigulu find themselves with Bulamogi Bukono and Bugweri in Bukowe group.
