Stanbic Uganda Cup Round of 16
14th -19th February 2019
The draws for Stanbic Uganda Cup round of 16 fixtures were held during the weekly press conference on Wednesday morning at FUFA House Mengo.
Club officials from the qualified 16 teams witnessed the draws that were conducted by former Uganda Cranes star Abbey Nasur, Stanbic’s Sonia Karamagi ( Senior Marketing Manager) and FUFA Club Licencing Manager Ivan Kintu Bayige.
Bayige confirmed that;
‘There wasn’t seeding of teams just like it has been since the start of the 2018/19 season in this competition. Matches that end in a draw after normal time, the winner will be decided on kicks from the penalty mark’
While speaking at the event, Abbey Nassur commended FUFA and the sponsors Stanbic for recognising him and urged the current players to be disciplined to achieve their goals because football is a job now.
‘I thank FUFA for recognizing me to be part of the event and i appreciate the sponsors for the funds they inject in the competition. We used to play Uganda Cup at no cost. But such funds from the sponsors are good for the welfare of Clubs and players’ said Nassur
Nassur is a former KCCA, Express & Prisons player in the 70s and 80s.
Stanbic Bank Senior Marketing Manager Sonia Karamagi made her remarks by praising the teams that made it to the round of 16.
It’s a hard task to make it to this round. It’s full of tension and passion. We anticipate both have geared up as we come to this level. We are excited as Stanbic to continue supporting the competition. We wish the teams success and may the best teams make it to the last eight’ said Karamagi
