Its a game of the centaury in the history of Ugandan football as two historical regions (West Nile Vs Kampala) meet in the 2022 FUFA Drum quarter final clash as of Sunday 18th September 2022 in Arua city - Ababet Green light Stadium (Onduparaka). Its of no doubt that this game shall be a tie breaker between the two region so as a quest to answer the supremacy of the two regions as per the drum rating.  

The two teams have never met in any competition FUFA Tournament ever since the centaury began hence its a game of the centaury.

Kampala as a province comprises of the District Football Associations of Central, Kawempe Nakawa, Makindye and Rubaga basically looking at the divisions of Uganda's capital city Kampala. Kampala was annexed as an independent federation based on FUFA's affirmative action on how it hosted major football resources.

However on the other side of the coin, The West Nile Regional Federation comprises of Political districts of Adjumani, Arua, Koboko, Maracha, Moyo, Nebbi, Pakwach, Yumbe and Zombo (Entire West Nile Region) with a special note on the additions of new districts such as Terego, Maracha, Madi Okollo by default. 

The Kampala region FA comes into this much anticipated quarter final clash having won one of its game against  Bukedi (Kampala 3-0 Bukedi) as of Match Day 3 and later on drew with Bukedi 1-1 Kampala in the return leg encounter.

West Nile as team comes as an advantaged team having been exceptional in the past encounters having won all of its previous games home and away against Karamoja in which the team had a 6:0 aggregate having won 5:0 at home and 0.1 in the return leg. 

However, Kampala region has one key advantage of of having one of the best resources management and mobilization in terms of strategy based on its central location and having a small size of geographical location.

The Kampala province also comes into this game as one of the organized teams in terms of support and sponsorship of the team which ahs been able to secure corporates sponsors such as Hypno Energy Drink Uganda who have come on to financial fund the team despite the (FUFA) Federations funding of the provincial teams in the on going 2022 FUFA Drum tournament
