Two male Ugandans have been appointed to be officials during the quarter-finals of the CAF Champions League.
The duo is security guru, Dixon Okello and match commissioner, Mike Letti.
They have been involved in their respective capacities here at home and beyond. They will now vie to do the same at a continental level.
Okello has been at various sporting events as a security officer including the FIFA World Cup (2010 South Africa) and Olympic Games in London (2012).
He will this time round make his debut on the continent for CAF duties in the game between Al Ahly of Egypt and Horoya AC of Guinea.
The match will be played in Alexandria on 22nd September, 2018.
While on duty, Okello will work alongside with Mohamed Dellagi of Tunisia who will be the other security officer.
Letti is a former player and is now match Commissioner. He will this time be in charge of the CAF Champions League Quarter-final game between Wydad Casablanca of Morocco and ES Setifienne of Algeria on 21st September 2018.
According to FUFA, this is a good berth for the duo that has always been doing a tremendous job.
Uganda is however no more in this continental showpiece after their representatives KCCA FC got ejected in the round of the last 16.
