Uganda will kickstart the campaign on Friday against fellow East Africans Tanzania in the 4th Edition of the Rollball world cup in Dhakar Bangladesh.
A total of 39 men’s and 27 women’s teams will be competing for the top honors in the weeklong event that climaxes on Thurday February23rd. The total number of male and female participants is 352 and 238 respectively.
Uganda and Tanzania are representing the continent together with nine other countries which include Rwanda, Guinea, Benin, Senegal, Ivory Coast and Sierra Leone.
“We have done enough preparations and are now ready for the challenge,” Rollball Uganda team captain Bukwata Godfrey Nsubuga told ChimpSport from Bangladesh.
He added; “We aim at a good start against Tanzania tomorrow and put ourselves in a good position as early so that we can remove pressure of ourselves.”
The teams have been spread in eight unequal groups where the top two at the end of round robin format will progress for the round of sixteen.
