The Masaza Cup continues to excel as a tournament in Uganda.
The 16 year-old tournament pulls crowds like no other across the competition.
Its finals can only be compared to a Uganda Cranes high-prolife match in terms of revenue and attendance.
With all that in play, the Masaza Cup organizing committee faces a task of ensuring such standards are maintained year in and out.
With this year’s edition expected to start in June, the committee has named two more sub-committees to ensure the tournament runs smoothly.
The committees were announced by the Minister of Sports, Leisure and Recreation Henry Ssekabembe Kiberu in presence of the Masaza Cup organizing committee chairman Sulaiman Ssejjengo.
The Masaza Cup competition Probe Committee will be headed by former Uganda Sports Press Association (USPA) President Sabiti Muwanga.
The other committee is the Rules and regulations review committee which will be headed by Uganda Premier League (UPL) chief Bernard Bainamani.
On the probe committee, Muwanga will be deputized by Bainamani who will also serve as the secretary with Ritah Nampoza, Peterson Magoba Kayima and Fred Kiyingi Musisi as members.
Rules and regulations review committee will have six other members in Frank Kyazze, Haruna Kyobe, Ruth Nalwanga, Dan Mwanje, Richard Kirabira and Fred Kirumira.
The Probe committee have been given 30 days to execute their rule while the Rules and Regulations committees have 15 days.
Bulemezi are the reigning champions after defeating Busiro 1-0 in last year’s final played at the Mandela National Stadium in Namboole.
Gomba are the record winners of the tournament, having won it on four occasions (04, 09, 14 and 17).
