KAVC Memorial organisers expect 24 foreign teams

KAMPALA

Twenty-four foreign teams have been invited for the NSSF-KAVC International Memorial tournament.
By yesterday, however, only one side – Rwanda’s Rayon Sport – had confirmed participation in the event due August 9-10 in Kampala.
“We are positive that we will have teams from Burundi, Kenya Sudan, Democratic Republic of Congo and Tanzania,” KAVC former president Dick Muhwezi said while launching this year’s tournament at Lugogo yesterday.
Rayon Sport was formed this year, hugely recruiting playing staff from Rwandan giants Inatek, who won the KAVC tournament in 2013.

Local sides Vision Volleyball Club (VVC) and Espoir, both in their debut season, are among the 17 female clubs. “They (VVC and Espoir) are invited because they have proved themselves and we believe they will give other teams a run for their money,” Muhwezi explained.
Last year, Nkumba University won the women’s version on their first time of asking.
