Flanked by the FUFA Communications manager Ahmed Hussein, Byamukama also lauded the various provinces that have gone an extra mile to solicit for sponsorship through efficient community mobilization.

Most teams have been able to look for sponsorship which is a great initiative as we are also in the final stages of securing the tournament sponsorship. This tournament has also helped provinces in handling event management and it has been a plat form for FUFA administrators to meet key stake holders in the game. The FUFA Drum has a high level of organization and we shall continue to maintain the status quo.
