The FUFA Competitions Department confirms the date (adjusted) for the final of FUFA Uganda Cup 2016/17 in Green Light Stadium Arua (FUFA West Nile Region).

The final shall be played on Thursday, 15th June 2017.

“The date was changed from 10th June 2017 because the national team would be playing on the same day away to the Cape Verde Islands. So to accommodate the interests of key stake holders, Thursday, 15th June 2017 was confirmed since KCCA shall be also playing away to Nigeria’s Rivers United on 20th June 2017,” Ali Mwebe, the FUFA Competitions director noted.

On Tuesday, KCCA played to a goal-less draw away to Express’ home ground in Wankulukuku and thus advanced 3-2 on aggregate.

KCCA will now play Paidha Black Angels who eliminated Sadolin Paints 3-2 on aggregate after two legs.

Paidha Black Angels won the first leg 2-0 away in Zombo before fighting hard to score a precious away goal in the 2-1 defeat during the return leg at Namboole.

This year’s final will be played at the Betway Green Light stadium in Arua, the home of Onduparaka Football club as hosted by West Nile region.

Vipers are the holders of this historic trophy whose competition has been played since 1971.

Like last year, a charity cause has been also attached to the FUFA Uganda Cup.

Members of the public are called upon to donate clothes and other usable items in support of the Arua Regional Remand Home.
