Last Friday, Airtel Uganda hosted football lovers to an AFCON viewing party at their offices in Bugolobi. This was during Uganda’s round of 16 tie against Senegal.

The Cranes fans suffered a heartbreak as Uganda was knocked out of the tournament after the game ended 1-0 in favour of Senegal.

Senegal took an early lead through ace player Sadio Mane in the first half. Mane had a chance to double the lead in the second half but failed to convert from a spot kick as Onyango made a big save.

Despite a spirited fight, Uganda’s efforts at equalizing came short, and by the final whistle it was still one-nil.

The evening was marked by exuberance and excitement from the viewers as they cheered on while also enjoying food platters and free flowing drinks.

The event concluded with a quiz in which participants were tested on their knowledge in a range of subjects including music and current affairs.

Here are some photos from the event:
