KCCA FC is set to play Kampala Regional side Lungujja Galaxy in the Uganda Cup Round of 32 at Philip Omondi stadium on Wednesday afternoon.

Originally, the match was supposed to be hosted at Lungujja Galaxy home ground (Uganda Martyrs’ Rubaga playground) but after a mutual agreement, Lugogo will now host the match.

Lungujja Galaxy eliminated Moroto United at the Round of 64 as KCCA whipped Koboko Rising Stars at the same stage.

KCCA forward Paul Mucureezi who starred against Koboko Rising Stars in their 6-1 win during the round of 64 duel at Lugogo aims to forward the interests of the club ahead of personal ambitions of adding to his personal tally.

He told the club website on Tuesday;

The target is not scoring but putting the team first, creating chances for my teammates, helping the team defensively to make sure we register a win.

KCCA F.C is chasing their 9th Uganda Cup title since their first cup victory in 1979.

The Lugogo club will use the match as rehearsal for the CAF Champions League return leg against Angola reigning champions Club Desportivo Primeiro de Agosto.

The Uganda Cup winner earns a ticket to represent the country at the CAF Confederation Cup.

Vipers Sports Club is the defending champion.
