2015/16 Uganda Cup winners will face off with Regional side Kajjansi United in the 64th round following the draw that was held on Thursday at Serena Hotel.
League leaders Vipers lost to eventual winners Proline FC in last years’ quarter finals and will hope to do better this time round as they keep their dreams of a double alive.
Vipers and Kajjansi have faced off in various practice games including a 0-5 win in September last year; Brian Kalumba (2), Bobos Byaruhanga, Brian Nkuubi and Umar Kyebatala were on target.

The draw, saw teams seeded in two pots; Pot A had UPL and 16 Big League teams while Pot B had the 30 Regional clubs and the two bottom teams in the Big league – Rwenzori and Elgon Groups. Pot B teams (weaker in rankings) are playing at home and this has not enabled an all UPL affair.
