SCVU nominated for Inaugural CECAFA Cup Winners’ tourney

The Federation of Uganda Football Associations have confirmed that Sports Club Victoria University (SCVU) will represent the country in the maiden CECAFA Nile Basin Cup winners’ Cup to be hosted by Sudan from 20h May-5th June, 2014.

CECAFA’s member Associations together with Democratic Republic of Congo and Egypt have also been offered the chance to nominate clubs to take part in the tournament.

Federations were asked to nominate teams that won their Knock out Cup tournaments or finished runners up in their respective national leagues.

‘We contacted SCVU and they confirmed participation as the deadline for registration was 15h April, 2014. It is a good tournament that will help our teams and players gain exposure’ said FUFA CEO Edgar Watson

In a communication that was sent to FUFA, the CECAFA Secretary General welcomed the new idea.

‘As a region, we need as many competitions as possible to strengthen our clubs and give them a competitive edge at the continental stage. Once this event gets off, we are of the opinion of launching CECAFA Champions League’ said Nicholas Musonye.

CECAFA and Sudan will cater for all the costs of travel and accommodation for all teams.
