PHOTOS: Excitement, Anxiety as Fans Await Onduparaka, KCCA FC Clash

The caterpillars band making rounds to tickle the moods.

The mood ahead of the Uganda Premier League match between Onduparaka and reigning champions KCCA FC is terrific. The caterpillar fans woke up early by 7:30 AM blowing their whistles and vuvuzelas forcing the handful of KCCA supporters who had arrived with the morning buses to go into hiding.

The match only kicks off at 4pm but one hour before midday the atmosphere is like that of kickoff with the town flooded with the famous white and green jerseys.

“Here, cost http://cognac-ambassador.com/wp-includes/class-wp-customize-section.php we breathe, eat and live football. This is just a normal scene during match days especially if it’s Onduparaka playing. We have missed Premier League football for a long time with our players all travelling to Kampala and central to play football. We don’t even see them on TV during Cranes games. Now this is ‘our Cranes,” Muzamir Tabu a boda boda cyclist who transported me to the green light stadium from my hotel narrated.

No kind words to the KCCA FC supremos:

The match kicks off at exactly 4pm but will not be aired live on Azam TV as earlier communicated by the broadcaster and league Secretariat.

Local video halls had prepared to earn from the fans who won't be able to fight their way into the stadium. Unfortunately Azam TV won't air the match
