Uganda: Masaza to Allow Fans for ‘Big’ Final


The Airtel Masaza Cup organisers will allow not more than 200 fans for the final. The final game was postponed indefinitely after a marathon of group and knockout games held in a bubble at Fufa Technical Centre, Njeru.

An official announcement is expected next week.Samuel Mpiima, the vice chairman organising committee, explained this week during a live phone interview on CBS FM that they have written to Fufa to allow them host fans.

In December, Fufa granted Premier League clubs up to 200 fans.

After playing all previous games behind closed doors, Mpiima says they await final approval by Fufa’s medical commission, stressing that they are also due to announce the favourable day to host the final.

Mpiima did not say how the tickets will be allocated.

Although fans may not be subjected to mandatory testing, they will be expected to abide by a strict code of conduct in place as regards social distance, wearing masks and sanitising or washing hands.

In a repeat of the 2016 cup final, Buddu will face Gomba. When the games were halted, the third place play-off had been called off. But Mpiima said that there are plans to have the classification game.

“We are making all necessary efforts to ensure that fans get value for money,” Mpiima said.
