The FUFA Drum 2022
Bukedi 1-1 Kampala
Kampala Province fought hard to earn a point against Bukedi in the first game of the 2022 FUFA Drum.
The tournament played across 16 provinces of the country returned bigger and better after a two-year lull due to the outbreak of COVID-19.
The long wait was treated to thrilling display with Bukedi hosting Kampala at Butaleja district headquarters on Saturday in a game televised live on FUFA TV.
It should be noted all FUFA Drum games will be broadcast live on TV, an addition that is expected to widen the coverage of the coveted Championship that runs along the theme-line “Celebrating Our Ancestry.”
Bukedi drew first blood with Mathew Odong finding the back of the net in the 40th minute. The forward was quick to tap home Fred Gwotwo’s cross.
However, Travis Mutyaba let Kampala off the hook, finding the equalizer, 14 minutes to time.
The diminutive forward with quick feet went past Peter Magambo before sending a low drive at the near post.
The two teams will face in the return leg on 13th August at Muteesa II Stadium with the winner on aggregate advancing to the group stage.
It should be noted that eight teams from this round will be pooled into two groups of four each, playing at a neutral venue.
