The Buganda Kingdom is contemplating making reforms in its popular football tournament, the Masaza cup to increase the tournament’s popularity.
Since the inception of the Masaza football tournament in 2004, it has proved to be one of the most popular local football competitions in Uganda.
For sixteen editions, the eighteen traditional football counties of the Buganda region have faced off for the sports honor in the Mengo government.
The kingdom instituted a six-member committee led by ex-international Frank Kyazze assisted by Vipers director Harunah Kyobe to review the tournament rules and within 14 days submit a report to the competition heads.
A separate five-member committee led by former USPA President Sabiiti Muwanga assisted by Uganda Premier League C.E.O Bernard Bainamani was also set up and given 30 days to investigate the controversies that marred the tournament last year.
If conditions allow, this year’s tournament is expected to start in June.
Bulemeezi is the defending champions of the Masaza Cup after beating Busiro 1-0 in the final last year, while Gomba is the record champions with four titles to their credit.
