It is one thing to write or speak about sports but another to answer questions related to the aforementioned sector.

Journalists always do the job to disseminate information to masses but this time round, they will have to test their sports knowledge in regard to answering sports related questions.

On Tuesday morning, the maiden sports Quiz league with Leon Ssenyange the brain behind it was launched at Route 256 in Lugogo.

Unlike the previous occasions where the sports scribes convened and competed in just one night, this time round it will be a series of event.

Four different sessions will be held with one coming every other month between August and November.

The opening session of the quiz league is slated for 24th August.

According to Leon Ssenyange, the projected number of teams to take part is ten each comprising of atleast five journalists.

Ssenyange believes the event helps in social networking but also equipping journalists with more knowledge about sports.

“We expect about 10 teams to register before the first session. And we encourage a group to have journalists from different media houses with at least a female journalist on every team,” he said.

“I believe this creates more bonding and unity amongst ourselves as journalists but also helps us learn more,” Ssenyange added.

Each team will pay Shs200,000 as registration fee to take part in the competition.

Judges Brian Odongo( Rugby Cranes captain) and Flavia Oketcho alias Flirsh(Gazelles captain) were also present during the launch.

Team Agosto comprising of Joel Muyita(Chimp Reports), Emanzi Ndyamuhaki (The Observer), Clive Kyazze(KCCA FC), Brian Tuka (Capital FM) and new signing Peace Diane Bagala(CBS FM) still remain the team to beat having won 2 of the previous three quiz night editions.
