Coach Shafic Bisaso has said that Proline will benefit much, including exposure, from CECAFA Kagame Cup.
The newly promoted side has on Wednesday afternoon confirmed that they will participate in the CECAFA Kagame Cup in Kigali from July 7-21.
“Its a good tournament to test our players on a bigger stage,” Bisaso exclusively told the-SportsNation. “We want to take advantage of this chance to let our players get exposed internationally.”
“Bright Anukani and Mustafa Mujuzi have been on the continent with the National team, and we want the rest of the squad to have that feel. I think this is a big boost.”
Bisaso added that he will assemble a competitive side that will put up a ‘big challenge’ against the big boys.
Proline FC will start their preparations on Monday, 24 at Lugogo with gym sessions before engaging in football sessions.
It should be noted that Proline FC, who are at CECAFA through an invite, won the 2019 Stanbic Uganda Cup after beating Bright Stars in shootouts in Masaka.

CECAFA brings together teams from Kenya, Rwanda, Burundi, Djibouti, Eritrea, Sudan, Somalia, South Sudan, Ethiopia, Uganda, Tanzania and Zanzibar.
