The competition brings together 128 teams from different regions with the winner taking part in the continental competition
The annual Uganda Cup competition draw has been conducted with a total of 128 teams set to take part in the Round of 64.
Defending champions Proline FC have a tricky fixture against Katwe FC. The former were crowned last year after defeating Bright Stars 5-4 in a penalty shoot-out after the two teams played to a 1-1 draw in regulation and extra time.
It was the first time a team out of the top division had won the competition, and Katwe will draw inspiration from their opponent to try and achieve the same feat.
