The Mitina Arcades football tournament hit high on its goals and targets amongst the business community in the suburbs (downtown) of Kampala.
The tournament was established with the aim of creating a friendly community among the people working in the various arcades in Kampala. The tournament has already proved its worth in identifying talent among the businessmen.
According to Moses Lubega, one of the pioneers of the tournament, there has been a lot of talent coming through the tournament.
“I am pleased to see a lot of talent coming from the arcades. The tournament was started on the basis of creating a friendly community not knowing we hold a lot of talent hidden in the arcades,”
Solomon Walusimbi who plays for StarTimes UPL side Maroons FC is one of the talents that was discovered from the tournament. Many other players that have risen through the tournament have gone on to feature in the Masaza cup tournament.
