Kooki won the championship in 2006 and therefore seeks for their second title in as many years.

The tournament’s local organizing committee is uncertain however of the kick off date because of the Coronavirus pandemic.

The kick-off of this championship, earlier set for June 2020 has been therefore delayed until a future date.

Players like Farouk Miya, Moses Waiswa, Joseph Benson Ochaya, Yunus Sentamu, Joseph Owino, Kezironi Kizito, Yassar Mugerwa, Alex Kakuba and many others played in this tournament and are now household names in the country.
