Busoga United Want To Host 2021/22 Season At Kakindu

Uganda Premier League side Busoga United have started plans to return at Kakindu Stadium, The-SportsNation has learnt.

The Club hosted their games at FUFA Technical Centre in Njeru last season.

However, the club feels that Njeru is far away from their huge fan base including those that come from Kirinya.

In addition, Busoga United trains at Kakindu but hosted games at Njeru which deprived them of ‘home’ advantage.

Busoga United, formely Kirinya Jinja SS, left Kakindu stadium in 2017 to host games at Kyabazinga Stadium in Bugembe.

They have started talks with Kakindu stadium and Town management.

They were given greenlight to use Kakindu before start of last season when they left Might Arena but the stadium did not meet the required FUFA standards.

Per last season, to host a league game, the stadium must be categorised under level three of FUFA Stadium Classification.

Kakindu’s missing mandatories to meet the standards include a need for a strong internal perimeter fence and physical separation of fans among others.

In similar developments, Busoga United are set to lose out of contract captain George Kasonko whose likely destination is BUL FC.

The club CEO Andrew Ndyabahika is also said to be in talks with the club bosses to extend his stay.
