Mbarara City’s Kakyeka Stadium Loses Hosting Rights

Mbarara City faces the challenge of relocating their home games after FUFA withdrew hosting rights from Kakyeka Stadium.

This was confirmed dyeing the release of the second round fixture of the 2023/24 Uganda Premier League.

“Kakyeka Stadium hosting rights has been withdrawn by the FUFA Club Licensing Committee,” reads a disclaimer on the league fixture.

The poor state of Kakyeka Stadium, particularly the visibly dry patches on the pitch, prompted FUFA to take action.

The decision leaves Mbarara City considering alternative venues for their upcoming fixtures.

Despite the setback, the club remains optimistic about addressing the required adjustments before their first second-round game against Express on February 2.
