September is always the busiest month in Ugandan university football as the ever thrilling University Football League (UFL) resumes. UCU takes on rivals Uganda Martyrs University (UMU) in the first leg of the quarterfinals on September 21, in Nkozi.
UCU coach, Jackson Nyima, whose side finished second in group B, with seven points, one behind Kyambogo University, hopes to break the jinx against UMU, who knocked them out at the same stage last season.
“They are a tough team to beat and they have always given us a hard time, but this time we are preparing for them. We hope to make it as far as the medal bracket and if possible win the league,” he said.
In the other fixtures, Busitema University take on Kampala University, Gulu University will play Nkumba University and Kyambogo University will be battling Makerere University.
