UPL: SC Villa to host Kirinya under floodlights in match day 23

Must read

The StarTimes Uganda Premier League enters match day 23 with the fixture between SC Villa Jogoo and Kirinya Jinja SSS FC to be played on Wednesday, 6th March at night.

SC Villa, who are 12th with 23 points, 7 above the relegation zone will host 8th place Kirinya in a game to be played at 7:30pm at Mandela National Stadium, Namboole.

This change in timing of the fixture is aimed at promoting the league further by encouraging more fans to attend games, especially those that work during daytime.

The last time night games in the topflight league were played was in 2012 when Super Sport was still the official broadcaster.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday 5th March, relegation threatened Nyamityobora FC will play host to Onduparaka at the Kakyeka stadium, Ndejje will host Vipers SC while Express host a much-improved Mbarara City in the live game of the day.

In the other games on Wednesday, Maroons will host Bright Stars in Luzira, Paidha host tax collectors at the Bar Okoro stadium, KCCA travel to Fort Portal to take on Tooro United while BUL play host to the Cops at the Technical centre in Jinja.

With eight games to go, KCCA still lead the 16-table log with 48 points, three ahead of second-placed defending champions Vipers SC. Ndejje University, Nyamityobora and Paidha Black Angels are the bottom three with 16, 13 and 12 points respectively.
