A total of 32 teams to feature in the round of 32 Stanbic Uganda Cup 2020 have been confirmed after an action packed six days of round 64 which kicked off on Monday.
Shockingly, the concluded round has seen five UPL clubs eliminated by regional clubs – and these include the 2016 Champions Vipers SC, 2016 finalist Onduparaka, 2003 finalist Police FC and Jinja based sides Busoga United and BUL FC.
Elimination of Vipers and BUL also made the sacking of their respective managers inevitable – Edward Golola and Peter Onen were shown exit doors in that order.
