Just like it was in the first leg, both sides will miss out on the services of key players who are with Uganda Cranes in Algeria for CHAN preparations that is inspirational custodian and skipper Nafian Alionzi for Westnile Province and so is Rogers Mato and Moses Aliro for Lango.
It’s the second time Westnile Province will be apprearing in the final following their first in the first edition in 2018 which they lost to Buganda over two legs while for Lango Province it will be their first time here.
The aggregate winner over the two legs will be crowned champions.
Buganda Province and Acholi Province won the first and second editions in 2018 and 2019, respectively, before COVID-19 hit the world.
