BUL FC, the champions of the 2022 Stanbic Uganda Cup, are set to clash with NEC in this year’s semifinals. The draw, conducted at the FUFA Complex in Mengo, paired the two teams in what promises to be an enthralling encounter. Former Express FC defender Umar Ssenoga, a champion with Express in 1991, officiated the drawing ceremony.

BUL FC secured their spot in the semifinals by eliminating KCCA FC earlier this month, while NEC FC earned their place by defeating last year's finalists, Uganda Police FC. Currently leading the Star Times Uganda Premier League with 46 points, BUL FC is aiming to achieve their first-ever double this season, joining the esteemed ranks of KCCA, Express FC, and Vipers who have accomplished this feat before.  

In another draw, Uganda Premier League third-placed club Kitara FC, who advanced by eliminating defending champions Vipers SC, will face off against regional league side Pajule Lions FC from Pader District. Pajule Lions FC made history by becoming the sole representative from their region to reach the semifinals of the Uganda Cup after overcoming Pakwach Young Stars. 

The semifinal matches will follow a home-and-away format, with the first legs scheduled for April 27th and 28th, and the return legs on May 4th and 5th, 2024. BUL FC and Kitara FC will host the first legs of their respective fixtures. It's important to highlight that the winner of the Uganda Cup automatically qualifies to represent Uganda in the CAF Confederations Cup. 

Vipers SC emerged victorious in the last edition of the championship by defeating Police FC in the final held in June 2023 at Akii-Bua Stadium in Lira City.
