Acholi fans will continue to witness the FUFA Drum in their Province as FUFA confirmed Gulu and Lira as hosts of the next phase of the tournament.

The latest development was announced by the Chairman of the FUFA Drum Organising Committee Rogers Byamukama during the FUFA weekly Press Conference on Wednesday morning at FUFA House in  Mengo.

‘Like we communicated at start of this year’s edition, the format of the FUFA Drum after the group stages was changed. We have selected Gulu and Lira to host the quarterfinals. The two districts have been chosen to ease accessibility of the fans and the media during the tournament’ said Byamukama

He added that the federation is working so hard to make sure the host venues meet the required standards.

The eight (8) Provinces through to the Quarter Finals will be pooled into two groups-one based in Gulu and the other in Lira and will be played in October but dates are yet to be confirmed.

The teams in the Quarterfinals are; Cup holders Buganda, 2018 runners Up West Nile, Lango, Acholi, Busoga, Bukedi, Bugisu and Tooro.
