Mandela National Stadium hosts Al Ahly’s match against KCCA
It has been confirmed that Mandela National Stadium will host Kampala Capital City Authority’s matches in the CAF Champions League, including their encounter against Al Ahly, in Uganda.
KCCA have been drawn in Group A alongside last year’s runner ups and Egypt giants Al Ahly, Tunisia’s Esperance Sportive de Tunis and Township Rollers of Botswana.
In an official letter, CAF Deputy General Secretary Football and Development Anthony Baffoe communicated to KCCA the decision to approve Mandela National Stadium as their home venue in the African competition.
“Mandela National Stadium comes with a couple of positives and opportunities among these; the club has an opportunity to host a vast number of the football faithful in Uganda given that Namboole is big enough and also the players will acclimatize to the kind of environment they will experience when they travel away to play the other teams in the group,” KCCA CEO Josephine Namukisa said in statements published on the club’s website.
