Express In Fix As Wankulukuku Ban Stays

Express FC is in search for a new place where they will host their league games after the Wankulukuku ban stays ahead of the second round of the StarTimes UPL.

The released fixture for the second round sees Express start on the road against Busoga United and Police FC before hosting Proline FC at a venue yet to be determined.

Other clubs – Tooro United, Bright Stars, SC Villa, Mbarara City and Kyetume – are yet to confirm their home grounds.

Muteesa II Stadium, commonly known as Wankulukuku was banned from hosting top flight league games on October 30 because it did not meet the minimum standards and a recent inspection has seen the ban stay.

Express FC CEO Hamza Junju has told the-SportsNation.com that the club is weighing on two options – Kitende or Wakissha.

“Truth be told, stadium management is too competent. They pretend but never let stadia recover hence becoming hard to remain football pitch especially with modern day licensing,” Junju said.

“On the part of FC (Express), good to start and push for bigger dreams of making sure we have a home that we can own and manage 100 percent.

“On a temporarily basis, we are looking at Wakissha and St Mary’s Kitende.”
