TAGT Tournament

In the Quadrangular tournament in 1977 in Ndola and Lusaka we(USC members) had an opportunity of having close relations with the members of Metro S.C. and had discussions to have sports ties between two clubs. In 1978 Union traveled to Lusaka with the invitation of Metro S.C. to play cricket, volleyball and tennis and the following year Metro S.C. visited Daressalaam from the invitation of Union S.C.

This move prompted other clubs in East and Central Africa to join the group and in 1979 a sponsor Babubhai Tarmohamed from Nairobi donated the trophy.
