Vipers President Lawrence Mulindwa officially opened the ‘new’ St. Mary’s stadium ahead of the 2018/19 StarTimes Uganda Premier League season that kicks off this Friday 28th September.
The stadium was refurbished with a newly laid artificial turf, improved stands and seats for the fans, a media tribunal and class dressing rooms for both the home and away teams.
Last season, CAF deemed the St. Mary’s stadium unsuitable for continental or international games, and this prompted the club to improve on the stadium before the Caf continental competitions start in November.
It becomes the third Astroturf stadium in Uganda after Njeru technical Center in Jinja and the StarTimes stadium in Lugogo.
Vipers will open their 2018/19 Uganda Premier League season campaign at the facility against newcomers Ndejje University and it will be live on TV.
