Nile Special University
MUBS v UMU
Third place playoff
Makerere v Ndejje
The Nile Special University Football League (UFL) final is on this Saturday at Mandela National Stadium.
The match falls on the same day SC Villa will take on Express in the Azam Uganda Premier League replay at Nakivubo Stadium. The first game on Friday last week was called off due to a waterlogged pitch after heavy rains.
But University league organisers insist that they have different fans and they set the date of the final way back in September.
Makerere will play Ndejje in the third place playoff before the final between MUBS and Uganda Martyrs University Nkozi (UMU).
UMU ejected Makerere 3-2 on aggregate to reach their first ever final. It all started with a 1-1 from the first leg which they followed up with a 2-1 win in the return leg.
The second semi-final had MUBS beat Ndejje 1-0 in the second leg after playing to goalless draw in the first leg in Luweero.
