Despite the on going disaster of COVID-19 pandemic, the Organizing committee of Masaza Cup confirmed this year's tournament will kick off today Saturday 12th December, 2020 at FUFA Technical Center Njeru under strict SOPs.
His Majesty the Kabaka of Buganda Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II will as usual grace the opening of the tournament that will see defending champions Bulemeezi square off with Butambala at FUFA Technical Center Njeru.
Bulemeezi are the defending champions having beaten Busiro 1:0, thanks to a strike from South Sudan's Loki Emmanuel at a muddy Namboole stadium last year.

Regular hand washing, physical social distancing, sanitizing, constant temperature testing and wearing of face masks at all times have been emphasized
