The La Mennais Secondary Schools Football Tournament was officially launched on Wednesday, 27 July 2022 at Kasasa with partners SWICO, among other companies reaffirming their allegiance in bold.
Sixty years ago, the catholic community in Uganda initiated a sports tournament in schools in recognition of the work of French priest Fr. Jean Marie de la Mennais.
Fr. La Mennais, alongside Fr Gabriel Deshayes founded the Institute of the Brothers of Christian Instruction in the region of Brittany on 6th June 1819.
The tournament that has football (boys and girls) has grown over leaps and bounds as it has over the years provided a great platform to showcase and nurture raw talent.
