The 2020 Masaza Cup tournament has been announced. It was launched on Tuesday during a press conference held at the Buganda Kingdom offices in Bulange Mengo.

In attendance were Airtel Uganda officials led by the Airtel Uganda Managing Director Manoj Murali and Buganda Kingdom officials led by Katikkiro Owekitiibwa Charles Peter Mayiga, who represented the Kabaka of Buganda, and the Sports Minister Owekitiibwa Henry Sekabembe.

Speaking at the press launch, Airtel Uganda Managing Director Manoj Murali applauded the Buganda Kingdom for their commitment towards the tournament and reiterated Airtel’s support.

“At Airtel Uganda, we aim to make a positive impact in the lives of Ugandans, not only through our excellent telecommunications services but also by investing in activities that bring people together. We are proud to associate with the Buganda Kingdom in the Masaza Cup as part of an agreement signed with the Buganda Kingdom to boost talent among the youth and mobilize people to participate in kingdom development programs,” he said.

The Katikkiro of Buganda Owekitiibwa Charles Peter Mayiga thanked Airtel Uganda for their support towards Buganda kingdom activities.

“Strategic partnerships are important to the Buganda Kingdom because we believe in the power of togetherness. With the right partners, there is nothing that cannot be achieved. We are proud to continue our partnership with Airtel Uganda as we launch this year’s Masaza Cup. This tournament boosts talent and creates unity and I encourage everyone to participate either as a player or as a fan,” he commented.

The Masaza Cup is an annual Buganda Kingdom tournament that has been played since 2004 and usually features 19 teams from 19 different Buganda Kingdom regions.

The tournament that should have kicked off in July 2020 was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bulemezi Ssaza are  the tournament’s defending champions.
