Hundreds of Villa fans are expected to storm Kyamate sports grounds on Saturday desperately hoping to witness their side over come KCC FC and lift the Uganda Cup for the first time in six years.
Villa’s Uganda Cup glory dates way back in 2009 when the team that was coached by Sulaiman Kato and skippered by Tony Ndolo beat URA FC 2-1in the finals, and a repeat of the same result over KCC FC on Saturday will bring home their record ninth Uganda Cup title, one better than day rivals KCC FC.
And in the bid to revive SC Villa’s cocky status in local football, taking the Uganda Cup will be an octopus catch to many Villa fans. First will act as a startup foundation to launch a serious title wining assault for the league next season, create value for Immanuel Misaga’s peso flashing policy but also to pay back to their fans.
Many Villa fans are allowing them selves to think that there is no more room error as the jogoos were pipped by eventual winners Vipers SC to league title.
The 16 time league winners have registred a skyrocketing return of fans to watch their games in the 2014-2015 season.
Zamu Nabukenya who has supported SC Villa for the last fifteen years admits that she is not concerned by the long distance to Ntungamo but wishes to see Villa win the title after along trophy-less spell.
“To me going to Ntungamo is the shortest distance if I am going to watch Villa play” she said. “We (Villa) have taken long with out winning the title and I think this is the best chance to win one in a long period of time. We (fans) are going to travel in big numbers and cheer our team untill the final whistle.” Nabukenya told Kawowo Sports.
SC Villa head into the finals as favourties after putting up a spirited yet unsuccessful show in league and more so boost of an experienced squad
