Nile Special University Football League 

Makerere v Kampala University

BRIAN Mugumya, new-comers Luka Okol and Edwin Hasule Junior are some of the names Kampala University will look up to as the 2014 Nile Special and Pepsi-sponsored University Football League rolls off today. 

Defending champions Kampala University open the season with a match against the 2012 champions Maker¬ere University at Makerere and coach Titi Kamara hopes to employ a more offensive approach as opposed to last season. 

His team has lost a number of prominent names who signed up with Big League and Super League teams which means they are no longer eligible for the university competition. But Kamara is optimistic he has enough manpower to get him results after the departure of Peter Otai and Mathew Odong.
