Arsenal FC

Premier League side, Arsenal Football Club is set to tour Uganda in June 2019 as part of a sports tourism project.
Uganda’s National Council of Sports Chairman Bosco Onyik confirmed the development.
“We went to London last month on January 16, 20118 and had three meetings with management of Arsenal FC with the aim of partnering with them,” Onyik told Chinese newspaper Xinhua.
The Gunners will train Ugandan coaches, give the Uganda Cranes chance to train at the Emirates Stadium in London, build an academy and also have their team to tour Uganda and play some matches.
“We agreed that they will train some of our coaches, give the Uganda Cranes chance to train at the Emirates Stadium in London, build an academy and also have their team to visit in June next year to tour Uganda and play some matches.” He added
Charles Bakkabulindi, the State Minister in-charge of Sports, told Xinhua that details on when the construction of the Academy will start and the plans for training coaches will be revealed in March of this year, when the Arsenal officials travel to Uganda to sign a Memorandum of Understanding.
This will be the first time Arsenal tour in Africa. In 2012, they made plans to visit Nigeria but later cancelled the tour.
