Defending the men’s Africa Division I T20 tourney later and seeking victory at the World Cricket League Division III stand out as Uganda Cricket Association’s (UCA) main targets this year on the oval.
But off the oval, they will have their hands onto many things this year mainly finding a new home.
At their Annual General Meeting (AGM) held at Oasis Restaurant in Lugogo on Saturday, UCA chairman Richard Mwami revealed that the Nakawa-based executive bought 14 arces of land in Kisubi in Entebbe.
“We plan to construct two ovals, nets, dressing rooms and hostels,” read part of the Mwami’s report to the stake holders.
From savings made by the body and a loan from Stanbic Bank, the project is likely to cost a value worth 180,000 US dollars (Shs480million).
“We hope to be in our new home before this year ends.” Mwami told the stakeholders.
“Once done, UCA will have a better chance of even hosting bigger ICC tourneys.” CEO Justine Ligyalingi told Kawowo Sports.
According to another official who preferred anonymity said the National Council Sports allowed UCA to construct an indoor facility at Lugogo with a regional office, rest rooms and a restaurant in the near future.
