Only eight teams are left in the 2021 edition of the Bamasaaba Bikuuka (clans) Sports football tournament, and just four places are there to be taken up in the semifinals.

The last eight teams all have just one shot, on a neutral ground to qualify for the semifinals, and the strongest of them all will each rightfully claim one of the remaining four spots.

The quarterfinal opponents have already been matched, and the organising committee headed by Israel Koboyi has confirmed that all the games will be held at one venue, that is Mbale Stadium over the weekend.

Following the updated fixtures, one game will be played on Friday, two on Saturday and the last one on Sunday.

Defending Champions, Mukonde have a tricky tie against Wakoko on Saturday, as they risk playing without a number of their key starters who also turn out for FUFA Big League side Kataka that has a game in Kampala on Sunday.

The highlighted Mukonde clan and Kataka FC players for this case are; Steven Namaisi, Hassan Wadenga, Tiff Kahandi and Nassur Nandala.

It is unrealistic to think that the same players will turn out for Mukonde in Mbale on Saturday afternoon, before travelling over 200kms to Kampala to play Proline at Lugogo on a Sunday afternoon, but it is very possible though.

Last edition’s finalists Halasi will also most probably miss the services of their influential captain Mike Siwu who will be away in Arua on official club duty in the Big League.

The Halasi fixture with Mutiru on Sunday, unfortunately for Siwu and his clan also coincides with the Blacks Power away tie against Calvary at the Greenlight Light Stadium.

The Bikuuka tournament PRO Medi Iddi has confirmed that the stadium entry fee has been set at five thousand (5,000) Uganda shillings for all the games, but Standard Health Operating Procedures will be strictly observed. ‘No mask, No entrance!’

In the semifinals, the winner between Mutiru and Halasi will play either Ginyanya or Siu on December 3.

Meanwhile, one of Wakoko or Mukonde will face Muyobo or Sano in the other semifinal, on December 4.
