FUFA Big League Play offs (Semi-finals) – Monday, 19th October 2020:

Kitara Vs Kataka – 10 am (Njeru)

Kiboga Young Vs Ndejje University – 2 pm (Njeru)

The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) Technical Center, Njeru will not be a recommended place for the faint hearted starting on Monday, 19th October 2020.

The day will mark the official kick off for the promotional play-offs, commencing with the FUFA Big League clubs.

Hoima based Kitara and Kataka from Mbale will engage in the first duel at 10 am before the second contest between Kiboga Young and Ndejje University at 2 pm.

The winner from the two matches will then square off on 21st October 2020 for the available slot in the UPL (Uganda Premier League).

Kawowo Sports’ David Isabirye take a detailed thesis in the composition of the two teams with their strong points.

Kitara Football Club:

The Hoima side that has a host of experienced players will be skippered by Maxwell Owachgui.

Experienced players as midfielder Daniel Ekoyu formerly at Sadolin Paints (Kansai Plascon), defender Musa Docca, Phillip Ssempira, Samuel Adibo and Yasin Mubiru.

Orthodox midfielder Jamir Kisitu Nvule who recently signed for Uganda Premier League club, Bright Stars will be allowed to play because FUFA allowed the licenses from last season to be used.

Nvule’s play making antics can shoulder any club to the desired heights given his rich footballing brains that overweigh the diminutive size.

Others are; Vincent “Beckam” Kasoki, Ivan Akera, Jamil Kiyimba, Patrick Mugume, Benon Baluku, Ivan Kyote, Brian Mululi, George Senkaba, Denis Monday and hard-working striker Peter Lomoro.

We are determined for the two games ahead of us as we look forward the slot in the Uganda Premier League

Kataka Football Club:

Hailing from Mbale in Eastern Uganda, Kataka is coached by Godfrey “Toldo” Awachango and assisted by Martin Manana.

Toldo and Manana have been of late beefed up by former Uganda Cranes assistant coach Martin Lule and Nimrod Kintu.

Former Uganda U-17 goalkeeper Edward Kasibante is expected to take upon the first place slot ahead  of Solomon Okello.
