The players actually get an opportunity to relax and take a break every year from the competitive rugby season.
The 7th edition of this carnival is taking place on the 4th of October, 2014. The venue for the event is Sport Beach Entebbe.
When Uganda Rugby Union had rescheduled the rugby season last year, the Nile Special Beach Rugby Carnival could not take place. However, this year it is taking place due to the sponsorship help received from IAA (International Air Ambulance) and Nile Breweries.
Ten rugby teams are going to be associated with this one-day tournament namely- Team Odong, Team Kimono, Team Mudoola, Team Tialata, Team Aredo, Team Adnan, Team Wandicho, Team Wazeyi, Team Wokos and Team Buloti.
The rugby team which will win the tournament shall receive one million Uganda shillings. The teams that stand in the second and third position are going to receive 750,000 Uganda shillings and 500,000 Uganda shillings respectively.
Each and every team will be constituted by a minimum of 4 rugby fans and two of them will be female fans. Fans have been selected on the basis of a competition that was conducted with the help of social media websites like Twitter and Facebook.
This edition of the carnival has actually been successful in attracting musical artists like Daniel Kigozi (who has won the PAM Award five times) and Cinderella Sanyu (who has won Diva Awards). Along with that celebrities such as A-Pass and Peter Miles are also going to perform at the carnival.
Therefore the Nile Special Beach Rugby Carnival 2014 is surely going to be a fun-filled event for everyone connected to it.
