THE two-week Mapinduzi Cup tournament reaches its climax today for defending champions Azam FC facing it off against Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) at the Amaan Stadium in Zanzibar town.
Azam are targeting the fourth victory of the title, while URA are eyeing to win the title for the second time.
Azam FC won 2012,2013 and 2017 events while URA won the 2016 edition.
Reports say Azam cruised into the final stage after posting a slim 1-0 win over the vent’s debuntants Singida United while URA eliminated Yanga by 5-4 goals on penalties following a barren draw in the normal time.
However, the ice-cream makers still face an uphill task against URA who are yet to concede a defeat until the final stage.
The Ugandan taxmen have defeated all Mainland Premier League giants Simba and Yanga and their last opponent Azam as well.
Azam would like to revenge against URA and stop the team from taking the trophy outside the country for the third time.
Kampala City Council Authority (KCCA) was the first team from outside the country to win the title in2014 after beating Simba 1-0 in the final match.
