KCCA FC departed for Botswana today for their first-ever CAF Champions League group stage match on Friday against fellow debutants Township Rollers.
A contingent of 32 including 17 players, seven coaches, one kits-man, two doctors, two media personnel and three officials departed from Entebbe International Airport aboard Kenya Airways.
First choice goalkeeper Charles Lukwago is suspended and Thomas Ikara will replace him, while Derrick Nsibambi returns to the team after recovering from a long term injury.
The team is expected to conduct a training session on Botswana National Stadium tomorrow before the game on Friday, at 7pm Ugandan time.
KCCA is in Group A alongside Township Rollers, 8 time Record holders Al Ahly and Tunisian giants Esperance.
Al Ahly will also be hosting Esperance on Friday in Egypt.
KCCA will host Al Ahly in the second game on May 15 at Namboole Stadium because their home ground, StarTimes Stadium, failed to meet the CAF standards to host continental games.
Goalkeepers: Tom Ikara, Malyamungu Jamil.
Outfield players: Kavuma Habib, Bukenya Lawrence, Nsibambi Derrick Paul, Kizza Mustafa, Mucureezi Paul, Okot Denis Oola, Musamali Paul, Kirabira Isaac, Poloto Julius, Nunda Jackson, Okello Allan, Obenchan Fillbert, Shaban Muhammad, Kaddu Patrick Henry, Awany Dennis Timothy.
