The grand finale of the Nile Special 5-Aside inter-bar tournament took place last Saturday (18th May, 2019) at UMA Upper Grounds Lugogo.

The event, which ran under the theme “Celebrating With Nile Special”, saw finalists from different regions playing against each other.

The 5-Aside tournament is a continent-wide initiative by Nile Breweries Limite’s parent company Ab-Inbev.

The ultimate prize for the winners will be a European tour with Cameroon’s football legend Samuel E’to.

Soroti’s Team Facebook emerged winners at the event after beating Tavern Kick 2-0 in the finals. They will now be representing Uganda at the Africa 5-Aside tournament in Tanzania where the overall winning team will earn an all expense paid European tour in the company of E’to a 2000 and 2002 Africa Cup of Nations winner.

The finale will also feature a ladies 5-Aside competition with the winner also making the trip to Tanzania for the Africa 5-Aside.

Other than the games, revelers at the event were entertained by singers John Blaq and Nina Roz, who excited everyone with their music performances.
