Rogers Byamukama, the chairman of the FUFA Marketing Committee witnessed the draws.

Byamukama, who is also a FUFA Executive Committee member called upon the corporate family to embrace the tournament that helps in networking.


For the fifth year running, FUFA will hold its annual Corporate tournament. This tournament is to interact with the corporate community, and network with potential sponsors. It is all about business networking creating relationships with the external stake holders. We started with eight teams. In the fifth year, we have 20 teams. It will be a great family day experience.
