Uganda Premier League outfits Express FC have started to renovate Betway Muteesa II Stadium, Wankulukuku.
Last season, Express hosted most of their games in Kavumba after Wankulukuku was deemed unfit for the league.
The club is hopeful that the stadium will be good to go before the start of the 2020/21 season which kicks off on October 17.
The emphasis has been put on the drainage system and playing surface of the multi purpose stadium.
“When I joined the club, we agreed with the board and the stadium management that there are basic things we needed to have in place around the playing turf and as time goes by you will notice the changes and I’d like to thank the club board for the support,” mwesigwa told the club website.
“We’re also setting up our training ground just beside the stadium to conform to FUFA licensing standards. As a club we want to closely monitor proceedings from training to match day from the same facility.”
Last year, Express had announced that they will be moving to their new home in Kasanje, Wakiso but the developments have since stalled.

Wankulukuku was named so because it was a flat area with many small anti hills that are called Nkulukuku.
