Uganda Revenue Authority Football Club has landed an invitation to tour Libya, days after the 2016/17 Uganda Premier League close.

The tour has been confirmed by the Libyan envoy in Kampala after the tax collectors have been seeking for clearance of the players and officials who will travel.

“They (URA Football Club) have been cleared to travel to Libya towards the end of May 2017,” a statement from the envoy read.

While in Libya where they will spend at least 10 days, URA will play three high profile international friendly matches against the reigning Libyan champions, Al Ahil (Tropoli), Al Ittihad and Al Olympique.

The tax collectors will use the trip as an early preparatory mechanism to the 2017/18 season and as well, a marketing and exposure gimmick for their players.

URA will complete this season without a trophy.

David Isabirye is a senior staff writer for Kawowo Sports where he covers most of the major events.
