The campaign is sponsored by Nile Breweries in partnership with FUFA. Cranes will play their first exhibition game this Sunday at Kakyeka stdium in Mbarara against a western region select side.

The four hour long training session was conducted by Uganda Cranes head coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevich.
