The 2020/2021 Stanbic Uganda Cup kicked off on Easter Monday with six games on card.

This year’s tournament has only teams from the Uganda Premier League and FUFA Big League.  

The change in playing format is as a result of the Covid-19 global pandemic that had left out the lower division teams (Regional and district teams) from taking part in the most prestigious knout tournament in Uganda.
