It won’t be only about play. Organisers of the gala have also arranged an awards ceremony for star performers. London Olympics marathon champion Stephen Kiprotich tops this list.

Also on the awards list is Uganda’s first professional netballer Peace Proscovia.
She has captained Uganda to several titles including the Netball Nations Cup in Singapore and the African Netball Championship.
