Vipers to Host CAF CC, 2nd Round Openers at Namboole

Uganda Cup holders Vipers Sports Club have shifted their opening Caf confederation home tie to Mandela National stadium, more about Namboole.

The club initially proposed to use the newly built St. Marys stadium in Kitende as their home ground but delayed construction works have forced the change in venue.

“We wish to inform our fans, health partners, erectile sponsors and all well wishers of Vipers Sports Club that due to the un foreseen delays in the delivery of roofing materials for St.Mary’s Sadium, the home of Vipers Sports Club, the roofing process slowed down,” a club statement read.

The statement further added that “Under this new development, the two matches namely, our second round opening league match, Vipers SC Vs Lweza FC and the CAF Confederations Cup home match against Volcan Club de Moroni of Comoros, will be played at Mandela National Stadium Namboole on 7th and 11th February,2017 respectively.”

The communication comes even before CAF releases their report after inspecting the stadium’s ability to host international matches.

The club hosted their first leg games at the Nakivubo stadium after moving from their previous home in Buikwe.
