It takes team work, dedicated service, special skills, courage, determination and sheer luck to win a major championship.

Special Forces Command (SFC) team combined all the aforementioned factors as they won the 2017 Entebbe Corporate football Gala held at the green lush of Lake Victoria Primary School play ground, Entebbe.

This followed their 2-0 post match penalty victory over Way To Africa Safaris after normal time had ended goal-less.

This was the first time that SFC was taking part in the second edition of this championship meant to bring together the corporate community around Entebbe Municipality and the surrounding areas.

SFC head coach head coach Afande Amirigo attributed the sweet victory to good preparations and awesome discipline among the soldiers.

When we got the invitation, we prepared well for this event. It is not by surprise therefore that we performed well and won the overall trophy.

Besides, the players were disciplined to the brim and followed the instructions from the coaches and other technical members.
