Nkonge also appealed to corporate companies to support grassroots tournaments so that better talents are groomed and nurtured for stronger national teams.

"Such grassroots tournaments help federations to identify the different talents that form the national team which carry the Uganda flag high in the Commonwealth, All Africa Games and other internationals," Nkonge stressed.
