FUFA Report: Why Kakyeka Not Fit To Host UPL Matches

Kakyeka Stadium in Mbarara City FC is one of the stadiums that didn’t classify into level three after the recent FUFA inspection

Hence, the stadium is unfit to host Uganda Premier League matches for the 2020/21 season.

Kakyeka Stadium has been home for UPL side Mbarara City FC.

The Ankole Lions will now look elsewhere ahead of their league opener with URA FC on Saturday, December 5 per the draft UPL fixture released.

After the FUFA Stadium Classification project, Kakyeka was listed under level four, hence good enough to host Big League games.

According to the FUFA report, to host UPL games, Kakyeka stadium management must work on the following:

  • Fully furnished dressing rooms for both teams and match officials.
  • There are no toilets for the fans (home and away)
  • No physical separation of fans.
  • There are no fixed and covered technical benches.
  • The stadium can easily flood due to poor drainage system.
  • The stadium is too busy and unhygienic.
  • Dedicated room for first-aid, medical and doping rooms.
  • Outer perimeter fence needs to be set up.
  • The goal posts and cross bars should be on standard.
