The Federation of Uganda football association (FUFA) has organised a pre-season tournament first of its kind slated for 1st – 25th August.
Besides the normal league of AUPL and Uganda Cup, another entertaining tournament was mooted by FUFA to act as a curtain raiser of the incoming season.
The 8 participants will include the best placed 6 teams on the previous AUPL table and best 2 teams of the 2017-18 FUFA Big League season.
As it stands, Vipers SC, KCCA, SC Villa, Kirinya Jinja SS, Onduparaka FC, BUL FC, Nyamityobora and Ndejje University will be taking part in this tournament.
No participatory fee will be required from all the teams in the tournament and failure to participate will result into inviting the next ranked team in the 2017-18 Uganda premier league season.
The eventual winner will move away with 10 million while runners up will earn 5 million of the tabled 30 million prize. The rest of the participants will share the other 15 millions.
