From a road trip as the Uganda Cranes die-hard fanatics traveled for the last AFCON 2019 group L qualifier against Tanzania from Kampala to Dar es salaam, a section of fans bore a great idea of starting up an organized group.

Led by two vocal fan leaders Jackson ‘Uncle Money’ Ssewanyana and Joseph ‘Kamodo’ Muwonge, the group had a mixture of male and female fans.

The group of about 25 fans has big and bold plans of spreading wings as they recruit other supporters on board.
