CK Ezy Buy Tabadamu, Seru Rabeni's Nasolo Young Boys, Natakala, Warden Gold and Vunimono One are through to the next stage of the tournament.

Yabakivou said they were thankful for the participation of the top sides.

He said it had boosted the morale and the development of the game in Burebasaga.

"There was a good turnout on the first day of the tournament and we hope for a better one (today)," Yabakivou said.
