The much-awaited Elgon Cup won’t be happening this year, unfortunately. The bad news has been delivered by Peter Odong, the Secretary of the Uganda Rugby Union in a press statement issued Friday afternoon.
“As you are aware, the annual rugby matches between Uganda and Kenya ‘The Elgon Cup’ were scheduled to take place on 23rd July 2022 and 30th July 2022 in Uganda and Kenya respectively. We regretfully inform you that these have been cancelled for this year.”
”The Kenya Rugby Union has informed us that with prevailing economic conditions and the looming general elections in their country, they are unfortunately unable to play the Cup this year.”
“As a partner, we duly understand and wish them the best in the remainder of their competitions. We look forward to the rest of the international season for the Uganda teams still participating.”
