CAF Confederation Cup: CAF confirms Dates for URA – Al Masry showdown

The Confederation of African football(CAF) has revealed the dates for URA FC’s encounter against Egypt’s Al Masry in the second preliminary stage of the CAF Confederations Cup.

The first leg is set to be held on October 16th, 2021 here at the St. Mary’s Stadium, Kitende, with the second leg coming on 24th the same month.

To reach this stage, the Tax Collectors eliminated Ethiopian Coffee 5-2 on aggregate in the first preliminary stage of this competition in a two legged affair held last month.

For Al Masry, they were given a bye in the first stage and will now begin their journey at this level.

With the 2021/22 Uganda premier league season slated to kick start on 15th October, URA FC’s opener would have been against Tooro United. However, the game has been pushed to November to enable the club take part in Continental engagements.

URA who are returning to the continent will be eyeing the next level of this competition when they meet the Egyptian side.
