FUFA has hailed the people of Gulu and Northern Region in general for honouring the Bell-Uganda Cup finals played in Pece stadium, Gulu Municipality last Saturday.

Speaking to journalists this Monday, FUFA Vice President in charge of Competitions, Isa Magoola said the federation had registered a huge achievement in taking this final to an upcountry stadium. “The game illustrated a realistic inside story that FUFA relates well with its fans within and outside Kampala city” he said.

The Vice President also added, “We shall continue with the same arrangement next season”. Magoola was optimistic that the standards would continue improving year after year.

Commenting about the number of spectators that showed up at Pece stadium, Magoola revealed that the match had grossed UG Shs.4.180.000. “About 50 fans purchased VIP tickets at Shs20.000, a sign that northern region is a fertile ground for soccer development”, the Vice President further revealed.

Northern region chairperson, Calvin Okello said this was the highest amount collected from gate charges in Pece’s recent history. The closest to this was Shs.2.8m raised during the Super League match when Gulu United hosted KCC in 1999. The home boys lost 1-0.

URA lifted this year’s Bell-Uganda Cup after edging Bunamwaya 1-0 and walked off with Shs.12.5 cash prize courtesy of East African Breweries Limited (EABL). The sponsors also rewarded Bunamwaya with Shs.4.5m

Vice President in charge of USL Mujib Kasule represented the FUFA president at this final also watched by Moses Magogo (VP-Admin), Edgar Watson (CEO), Rogers Byamukama and Calvin Okello (FUFA Executive members) among many other dignitaries.
