Sophie for Shipping and Logistics (SSL) company were first time participants at the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) corporate tournament held over the weekend at the FUFA Technical center, Njeru.
The debutants fought their way to the finals, losing to National Water and Sewerage Corporation who successfully defended their title won in 2015.
National Water defeated SSL Logistics 1-0 with the winning goal head home by the tried and tested Ahmed Swalley in the second half of the game.
SSL logistics managing director Shady H. Ez-el-din has thus showered special praise to his team, the organizers (FUFA) and the rest of the participating companies;
It was a great opportunity to play with the other corporate family.
It is a worthwhile experience to meet and know different people, interact freely as well as play to keep fit.
We shall return in the next edition.
The SSL team was led by household names – Thomas Kanakulya, Robert Kateregga, Said Kizito, Coffins Okello among others.
Shady calls upon improved refereeing at this tournament to make even better.
In the third place play-off match, another debutant side, Civil Authority Authority defeated Uganda Premier League team 3-0.
This was the second time that FUFA was organizing such a tournament meant to bring together corporate companies with a sole aim of rallying support and building cordial working relations.
