Mama Becca Women Tourney:
- 8th & 9th March 2016 – Old Kampala Secndary School, Kampala
The legacy of M/s Becca Kazibwe (now deceased) as an icon in Uganda’s football development remains unrivaled.
She was a great female football fan who loved Express football club with all her heart.
Besides, she was one of the pioneers of women football in Uganda.
Mama Becca as she was fondly refereed to by the football family was loved across the divide.
Upon her demise, a female football tournament was initiated. The 2016 edition was due to run on the weekend of 25th and 26th Marc 2016.
However, because the tournament fell on the busy Uganda Cranes away and home preparations of the AFCON match against Burkina Faso, FUFA has postponed the tourney to the 8th and 9th April 2016.
FUFA official mouth piece, Ahmed Hussein explains;
Mama Becca tournament deserves all the due attention and respect. For this reason, we have pushed it ahead by a week.
Already, primary school qualifiers were successfully held last week with 24 teams qualified for the main tournament that will be held at Old Kampala Secondary school.
Secondary schools and clubs that play in the FUFA Women Elite league will also take part.
FUFA Women football development football officer, Hadijah ‘Lady Mourinho’ Namuyanja has confirmed to Kawowo Sports all the preparations have been well conducted and only time to kick off the event awaits.
