The six-aside JICO League features 14 teams, which are allowed to field one female player of their choice to achieve the competition’s main objectives of networking and socializing among the college’s former students.
Currently, it is a three-horse race for the title with table leaders Nvuuyo FC on 25 points from 10 games followed by Solida FC at 23 points and Mboyo FC on 22 points in third place.
On Saturday, the biggest game will be the top-of-the-table clash between Nvuuyo and Solida FC in the evening. Nvuuyo will warm up with a game against bottom Kaswandi FC while Solida play Nvuluga FC.
However, Kaswandi, who are bankrolled by TheKampala Report, have warned Nvuuyo to expect a tough battle.
