In fact, both teams have intensified the preparations with build up matches. Bulemezi overcame SC Villa 1-0 on Friday and Busiro beat Kasanje 4-0.

Mayiga confirmed that for the first time (King) Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II will come along with special guests.

Kabaka Mutebi II invited some special guests from UNAIDS so as to emphasize this year’s theme of fighting HIV/AIDS.

He also warned those who will turn up against acts of hooliganism.

Before the final, Buddu and Kyaddondo will face of in the 3rd place match.
