How Tight Budget Swayed Arua Hill Into Dynamic SS Partnership

Arua Hill SC chairman Hassan Takoowa has given a detailed explanation as to why and how the Uganda Premier League (UPL) side reached the decision to affiliate with Dynamic SS.

Apparently, FUFA instructed that all teams playing in the UPL will be mandated to have a team in the FUFA Juniors League (FJL) – a preserve of players under the age of 17.

The FJL 2023/24 season is expected to kickoff on 4th February 2024, and that obviously isn’t enough time for the disaster-stricken Westnile-based club to arrange a Juniors team of their own.

That, amongst other reasons prompted Arua Hill to find a quick solution, and that’s how the idea to partner with a footballing school cane in handy.

“We are very committed to working with others across the football community to come up with sustainable solutions to the long-term challenges facing the club.”

“We took a decision to partner with Dynamic SS, a footballing school based in Mukono to ease our Juniors participation in a League starting on 4th February despite our current financial challenges,” the club chairman explained.

“Against that background, we chose to work with Dynamic SS because 75% of the teams in our group (Treble) are based in Buganda and this shortening of this distance would enable us to honor our Juniors fixtures.”

Group Treble has Arua Hill SC JT, alongside KCCA FC SA, Maroons FC JT, NEC FC JT, Express FC JT, URA FC JT, UPDF FC JT and Kitara FC JT.

The other Group (Hat Trick) has SC Villa JT, Soltilo Bright Stars FC JT, Vipers SC JT, Wakiso Giants FC JT, BUL FC JT, Gaddafi FC JT, Busoga United FC JT and Mbarara City FC JT.

In the UPL, Arua Hill sit at the bottom of the UPL table with just five points from 15 games. The Kongolo throughout the whole first round have only won once, drawn twice and lost twelve games.
