Defending champions Ndejje University are favourites to retain the overall title and are keen to maintain their prowess though wary of the hosts.
“I know UCU have home advantage. But the good thing is that we have a better competitive edge,” Winfred Muhumuza Ndejje’s sports co-ordinator stated.
Other favourites are Kampala University finished third at the East Africa Games in Nairobi early this year with Kampala International University (KIU) coming second behind Ndejje.
Teams reported at UCU on Sunday.
