The next date communicated was 10th June but due to national team engagements, page where Uganda Cranes will play against Cape Verde on the same date, this was automatically found undeserving.

On Thursday evening, FUFA Competitions director, Ali Mweebe came up with the communication indicating the new date will be 15th June.

“We have tried to look for a day that is convenient enough for both teams. And in the meeting with both teams, we agreed that 15th June will be a suitable date,” he told ChimpSport.

KCCA FC will take on Paidha Black Angels in the finals at Betway Greenlight stadium in Arua.
