The sixth season of Friday Night Lights (FNL) fun Basketball Tournament, kicked off on March 4, at the YMCA Courts in Wandegeya with three Lady Canons stars featuring.
Judith Nansobya, Vilma Achieng and Zaina Lukwameri play for Team Koma, Team Jonah and Team Kami respectively, while none of the Canons men features this season.
The tournament involves national Basketball League players who team up with fans, then tussle it out for cash.
Each team takes home Shs3m irrespective of the result, but the major catch will be on the final winners. The overall winner will walk away with Shs3m, while the first runner-up will get Shs 2million and the second runner-up Shs1.5m.
The organizers chose eight captains: Maureen Amoding (Team Amoding), Kami Kabange (Team Kami), Ben Komakech (Team Koma), Jonah Otim (Team Jonah), Joseph Ikong (Team Ikong), Norman Blick (Team Blick), Ivan Enabu (Team Enabu) and Team Wazee (consists of legends of the game).
