Uganda: UPDF Favourites to Retain the Inter Forces Title

Defending champions UPDF are on are favourites to retain the Inter forces games title as the 10th edition climaxes today at Namboole.

The army side has so far bagged a trophy in the Shooting discipline giving them an advantage over the warders who are looking forward to today's wins to get back into the contest.

Prisons are also battling to reclaim the same title they lost in 2010.

But warder's pledge might not be possible since UPDF is likely to have thier best stars Khald Aucho, Jimmy Makubuya and Henry Tindyebwa among others in their striking line as they play Police in a soccer game that is to determine this year's champion.

Prisons will also play UWA in the last soccer game this evening at the same venue.

The week long event with a theme "Reading and mutual support of the armed forces for sustainable national security" will also see teams parade for the closing handball encounters as UWA takes on UPDF while Police faces Prisons.

UWA's sports officer Samuel Amanya commends his side for an improved show saying they are getting better with time and he expects his side to emerg champions soon.

"I feel we are improving day by day because remember we only come out for game once a year not like other competitors," explained Amanya.
