Defending champions Singo was defeated 2-0 by Gomba in the opening match of the Masaza football tournament before their fans at Ssaza Ground in Mityana on Sunday.

Gomba are three time champions (2004, 2009 and 2014) and two time finalist (2005 and 2007) but failed to advance from the group stages last year.

"It has been a year of hard work by the players and support from the officials and fans. While many fans are asking for the trophy, I am looking at supply entertaining football to make them happy," said George Lutalo, the new coach for Gomba.

For the defending champions Singo, fielding a new side could have been the limiting factor but Coach Abdallah Mubiru is confident the boys will get better.
