KCCA FC have revealed the inspiration behind their new kit ahead of the 2020/21 season.
The 13-time league champions launched their home jersey on Sunday.
The jersey has slight new features from the one used in the 2019/20 season – The yellow and blue colour has been retained.
There are unclear lines at the front and the back of the shirt.
“This year’s invisible blocks / lines are a representation of stadium development which is top on the to club’s to do list for 2020/21 season,” KCCA FC has said via their website.
“The lines represent the pillars and poles that will be a strong foundation of the stadium when construction commences.”
The club is set to redevelop the StarTimes Stadium Lugogo in a project that will cost around Sh10bn.
The commencement of stadium development of the Stadium will start soon and KCCA (the Authority) recently confirmed that they have allocated funds for the project.
The Impala (animal) appears thrice on the jersey – At the base of the shirt, short and at the back of the shirt just above the tip of the spine.
“It is a known fact that the name Kampala comes from an Impala, a type of antelope which used to graze on the slopes of Mengo. The name, Hill of the Impala was given specifically to the hill on which Captain Fredrick Lord Lugard, a British administrator, established his camp (Fort) on December 18, 1890.
“The Baganda translated Hill of the Impala into Kasozi Impala (pronounced Ka Impala and eventually Kampala).”
There is a round mark at the base of the shirt that has an Impala (a type of antelope from which Kampala City derives its name from) leap over the seven hills of Kampala with a mark below showing KCCA FC Since 1963. A clear indication that KCCA FC has been in existence for 57 years and counting.
