The long wait is over. Finally. FUBA has organised a dinner. It is official. It is confirmed.
Borrow that dress or suit. Prepare yourself for the best food and drink, it’s this Sunday.
All is set for the FUBA Awards dinner this Sunday, April 7th at Kabira Country Club, with what promises to be a glamorous event starting as early as 4:00 PM.
The cold long nights at YMCA, the anger from fans and officials as they protest the referee’s decisions, the hours spent in training, those moves, those struggles are all going to be summed up in one night, elegantly.
“We expect it to be a good function,” anticipated new FUBA President Nasser Sserunjogi when speaking to SportsNation.
“We shall award top athletes and teams from the previous season in all divisions from NBL, Div I and D-league (now Div 2) men and women.”
It should be noted that the last FUBA awards dinner was held in 2016 at Imperial Royale in Kampala. Then, Kami Kabenge (Oilers) and Vilma Achieng (UCU) were the Playoffs MVPs.
Any of Geoffrey Soro (Power), Brian Namake (JKL) or Michael Bwanga is expected to be crowned as MVP regular season while Oilers’ trio of Landry Ndikumana, James Okello and Jimmy Enabu will vie for MVP playoffs.
For the Women category, Jamila Nansikombi is expected to scoop MVP for both regular and finals. However, for the regular season, Cynthia Irakunda (KCCA), Ekon Brenda (Nkumba), Rose Akon (UCU) and Stella Nikuze (A1 Challenge) will lay claim to the gong.
