Express FC shifts to Kavumba, Wankulukuku remains suspended


Startimes Uganda Premier league giants Express FC confirmed they will play all of their remaining home matches this season at the Kavumba recreational grounds in Wakiso.

George Ssemwogere’s men have been forced away from normal life ever since  their home ground, the Betway Mutesa II Stadium, Wakulukuku stadium was deemed unplayable by the FUFA licensing committee in October last year.

Since the suspension, Express FC have been hosting their home games at the Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium in Wakiso as well as the FUFA Technical center in Njeru for the first round games.

On temporary grounds, the Red Eagles played 3 games, lost 2, drew 1 and won none to end the SUPL first round 11th.

When the Wakulukuku stadium was reinspected late last year, the decision to further maintain the suspension stood after the Staduim still fell short of the minimum standards needed to host an SUPL game.

The St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende and Kabaka Kyabaggu sports stadium in Wakiso were considered before the Express FC board zeroed down on Kavumba recreational grounds as their for home games as it was not as busy as as the former two.

Express FC who sit 11th on the log, will have to wait until 18th January, 2020 to make their Kavumba debut as their first 2 second round games are both away to Busoga United and Police FC.

Kavumba recreational ground which was home to now Tooro United FC (former Soana FC) in 2017, is located in Wakiso Town Council, a few miles from the capital of Uganda. Mbarara City FC also used the ground on a temporary basis in 2018.
