Stanbic Uganda Cup holders Vipers SC will face Wakiso Giants FC in the Quarterfinals of the 48th edition.

The Wakiso derby is the headline fixture from the quarterfinal draws that were conducted on Wednesday at FUFA Complex in Mengo.

The function was presided over by FUFA Executive Committee member Rogers Mulindwa who also serves as Vice Chairman, FUFA Competitions Committee.

He was flanked by Uganda Cranes Ex International and current FUFA National Teams Officer, Paul Mukatabala plus FUFA Professional Leagues Manager, Shawn Mubiru.

Vipers who are currently top of the table in the League with 8 games to play will try to compete at both fronts as the search for an elusive domestic double continues.

The closest they came to winning both the League and the Cup came in 2017 but fell to KCCA FC in the Uganda Cup final played at Emokori Grounds, Bukedea.

Booma FC and Mbale Heroes FC will hope to continue their Cinderella story by advancing to the semifinals.

The aforementioned teams have had a scintillating run in the Stanbic Uganda Cup and remain only the two regional league clubs in this year’s competition.

Mbale Heroes FC from Eastern Regional League stunned Police FC at the previous round while Booma FC on the other hand ejected TIPSA FC.

In the quarterfinals, Booma FC have been drawn at home to StarTimes FUFA Big League entity Maroons FC while Mbale Heroes FC will visit Mbarara City FC at Kakyeka Stadium.

In the other quarterfinal fixture, SC Villa will face BUL FC at FUFA Technical Centre, Njeru.

Mulindwa indicated having teams from as far as the Regional Leagues at this stage means the competition has been stiff from the previous rounds.
