Lady Doves thus qualifies for the round of 16 stage ahead of the draws whose date will be confirmed by the FUFA Competitions department.

Lady Doves assistant coach Fred Musiime believes the team is ready to face whichever team comes and that his players have gained enough experience to tussle it out with Elite league teams.
