Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) will reward She Corporate FC with $30, 000 (Shs115m) if they win the 2022 TotalEnergies CAF Women’s Champions League Zonal (CECAFA) Zone Qualifiers.
She Corporate FC is the FUFA Women Super League (FWSL) Champions and will this evening at 7 pm play Tanzania’s Simba Queens in the final at Chamzi Stadium. It will be a repeat of the Group B match the two teams played with Simba Queens winning 2-0.
And as a reward, if the She Corporate FC defeat Simba Queens to qualify for TotalEnergies CAF Women’s Champions League, the Ugandan federation said each member of the squad (players and officials) will get $1, 000 for a contingent of 30 people.
Phiona Nabbumba who is She Corporate’s leading scorer with six goals in the tournament is expected to lead the Ugandan team against a well-organized Simba Queens side.
“Simba is a very good team with many skilful players. But we played them before in the group stage and know their strength and weaknesses,” says She Corporate coach Charles Lukula Ayiekoh.
But the Simba Queens head coach Leonard Sebastian Nkoma made it clear that they will not take their opponents lightly. “This is a final and we must respect our opponents, but use tactics that will win us the match,” added the coach.
Simba Queens will look to some of their in-form players Opa Clement Tukumbuke, Asha Djuma Djafari and Kenyan defender Vivian Aquino Carozone who has already netted four goals in the competition.
The winning team will also receive a cash prize of US$30,000, while the runner-up takes US$20,000 and the third-placed team US$10,000 from CECAFA. If She Corporate FC wins, they will be $60, 000 richer.
The other Awards that will be presented include; Best Player of the Tournament, Top Scorer, Fair Play Award and Best Goalkeeper.
Meanwhile, in the third place play-off, Commercial Bank of Ethiopia FC which was beaten by She Corporate FC 2-1 in the first semifinal will play AS Kigali which fell to Simba Queens in the second semifinal.
