The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has confirmed the final Regional Tour of the year for Uganda Cranes.
The Uganda Cranes will travel to Northern Uganda next week and play a friendly match against a select side from Northern region.
The development was confirmed by the FUFA Communications manager, Ahmed Hussein on Thursday.
“The Uganda Cranes team will travel to the Northern Uganda in Lira district next week to play a build up match in the Uganda Cranes Regional Tour arrangement,” Hussein stated.
This will be a build up match ahead of the Ghana Black Stars match on 7th October 2017 in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
The national team has played several test matches in the different regions of the East (Kamuli), West Nile (Zombo), Kitara (Fort Portal) and recently Western at the Kabale Municipal Stadium.
A bulk of locally based players are expected to travel for the Northern Regional tour match as the foreign based stars will not have arrived by then.
