“We also want our Ugandan players to get exposure so that they could be seen on a good stage so that the professional clubs could have a look at them and you never know, one or two chances could arise. We also have to note that through this tournament, we have contributed to a number of Ugandan players going professional. A number of them are playing within the region and a few in Europe. Again, we are happy that we made that kind of contribution and we will continue to do so in the near future. I would like to thank the organisers for again enabling us to partner with them.” Added Karamagi
