Pirwot is a current player at Kampala Regional League side, Kampala Junior Team (KJT).

Based in Ssembabule district, Mawogola is eyeing their first-ever championship since the Masaza tournament returned on the scene in 2004.

Although the 2019 championship kick-off largely remains a matter clouded by mystery because of the Coronavirus pandemic that has plugged the entire world, the different Masaza teams all remain focused and unfazed prior to the tournament proper.

Right from naming the management committees by the respective Masaza chiefs, the different teams have gone an extra mile to seek for means of meeting supplementary budgets and player recruitment.

By and large, Gomba remains the team with most championships – four won in 2004, 2009, 2014 and 2017.

The tournament has given a firm platform to expose talents as Joseph Benson Ochaya (Mawokota), Yassar Mugerwa (Gomba), Joseph Owino (Mawogola), Mikidadi Ssenyonga (Busiro and Buddu), Alex Kakuba (Mawogola), Farouk Miya (Mawokota), Joseph Jjanjali (Buddu), Edrisa Lubega (Ssingo) and many other promising players.
