Why KCCA FC and Paidha Black Angels
Uganda Super Cup is a curtain raiser to the new upcoming Football League season and it’s an equivalent of the Community Shield (England), Super Copa de Espana (Spain) and DFL Super cup (Germany).
It is contested by two teams; Previous Winners of the League and the Uganda (Kakungulu) Cup.
Since KCCA FC had won both the League and Uganda Cup, its Paidha Black Angels who were the Uganda Cup runners up that came in as the Champions of the Uganda cup.
The Cup is a one off final normally played at a neutral venue.
What next for both Sides
