The first crowning ceremony in 2020 for the Real Stars Sports Awards will take place at Copper Chimney Restaurant on Monday, 17th February 2020.
There are four categories that will be crowned on the day in football (players and coaches), rugby and boxing.
URA’s head coach Sam Bamweyana Ssimbwa, Ayub Khalifa (Uganda U-17 national women head coach and Kawempe Muslim manager) as well as Bright Stars’ head coach Paul “Kiwa” Kiwanuka also make the football coaches’ short list.
Uganda U-17 and U-20 women football team player Juliet Nalukenge and two players from Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) Football Club, Cromwell Rwothomio and Saidi Kyeyune are the players.
Nalukenge scored three goals for Uganda U17 both home and away against Ethiopia as Ayub Khalifa’s coached side cruised to the next level of qualifiers.
Against Tanzania in the U20 FIFA Women qualifiers, Nalukenge was on target away in Dar es salaam before the team was bundled out at home during the return leg played at StarTimes Stadium, Lugogo in Kampala.
URA’s Cromwell and Kyeyune have also been equally relevant for the tax collectors’ side during the month.
Cromwell scored four goals in the six matches played in January 2020, helping URA make majestic strides in the league as well as the knock out Uganda Cup.
Kyeyune was equally on fire and form, with the customary play-making antics as he assisted teammates at free will and was personally on target twice.
In Rugby, Hima Cement Heathens’ duo of Scott Oluoch and Joseph Oyet have been nominated alongside KOBS’ Daudi Ssemwami.
David Ssemujju, Isaac Masembe and Dorren Nassali make the final short list of boxers on the January rooster.
These awards are organized by Real Stars Sports Agency and have been held every month since 2018.
“We are humbled to have the Real Stars Sports Awards back in 2020. We shall be unveiling a new sponsor on board.” Isaac Mukasa, the Executive Director noted.
The awards are meant to reward the outstanding personalities.
