Lango, 1-0 losers to Buganda in the official opening game will play Ankole at UTC playground in Lira.

Farouq Nsereko, the immensely gifted Muhammed ‘Meddie’ Matovu and Kato Umar were on target for Charles Livingstone Mbabazi’s side.

Sebei hosts defending champions Buganda at the high altitude Kiprotich playground in Kapchorwa.

Nasur Chemutai and Brian Odong who got the consolation goals for Sebei will lead the surge for goals at home against a star studded Buganda side, coached by Nyamityobora head coach Alex Isabirye.

Buganda had a great start in a quest for their title defence with 1-0 win over Lango during the official opening match.

Last season’s MVP, Viane Ssekajugo was the hero with the early strike.

On Sunday 14 April 2019, there will be four games as well.

Charles Ayiekho’s Busoga had drawn in their first match with Tooro with Ibrahim Mugulusi scoring for the home side before an unfortunate own goal by Isaac Isinde brought the game level.

Musa Mihinzi Mbusa’s fourth minute goal separating the two sides.
