All is set for the Airtel Buganda Masaza cup final, a game that pits Gomba against Singo at the Mandela National Stadium, Namboole.
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, Ms. 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 final teams good luck.
