Vipers sports club has been drawn against Tunisian giants CS Sfaxien in the CAF confederations cup play-off round for a slot in the group stages.

The Venoms will host the first leg at St Mary’s stadium Kitende between 11th – 13th January 2019 with the second leg at Stade Tareb Mhiri a week later as per the Caf guidelines.

The Uganda Premier League champions made it to this stage after elimination from the champions league by Algeria’s CS Constantine having gone past El Merriekh in the preliminary round.

The first leg arrives after a congested league schedule where we meet URA on January 2nd before an away trip to Mwererwe to play Bright Stars on 5th January and a home fixture against Onduparaka on 9th January.

And the second leg will be preceded by a Uganda cup engagement with a yet to be unknown opponent plus a delayed Mbarara City league match.

Vipers will be aiming to qualify for the confederations cup group stages after failing short on the same assignment in the Caf champions league.
