KAMPALA – Uganda Premier League (UPL) defending champions KCCA FC will host Tooro United FC on Friday, January 17th 2020.
The fixture which was supposed to be played on Saturday, January 18th 2020, has been brought forward by a day as confirmed by the UPL secretariat.
This is not the only fixture that has been adjusted with Police FC at home to Kyetume also brought forward to the same day.
The Cops and Slaughters were supposed to face on Saturday but will instead do battle on Friday, just like KCCA FC and Tooro United FC.

“The Secretariat is in receipt of a letter from FUFA notifying us that Uganda will host South Sudan Vs Algeria U20 Women’s National Football Teams in the U20 FIFA Women’s World Cup Qualifier match on 19th January 2020 at Star Times Stadium Lugogo…,” read part of the statement from UPL.

It is also understood that the Stadium will be used by South Sudan in the future as they host their international games.
