Domestic football body, approved FUFA has sanctioned the much awaited Eastern G4 tournament which is scheduled for July 30th and 31st in Jinja.

“Fufa has no objection to the tournament provided the rules and regulations of association football are upheld and also provided that the Eastern region football association is aware of the tournament, ” an acceptance letter from Fufa CEO Edgar Watson partly reads.

The two-day tourney will see the four premier league sides including BUL FC, Sadolin, JMC hippos and recently promoted Jinja SS FC clashing for the first time in a competition outside the league.

The event has been organized by Tango Sports limited as one of the ways to boost football in the region.

“The main objective is to promote football in this region while also giving the clubs a chance to gauge their preseason preparations,” Tango Sports manager Joseph Mutaka said.

“We are also courting a guest team from beyond the borders or a big club in the league. This will help the teams shape better.”

The participating teams are expected to pay about Shs1m as registration fee while the guests are admitted freely but have no chance to win the medals or money prize.
