Vipers sports club reconvene yet again for another anticipated nail biting Startimes Uganda Premier League encounter against Tooro United on Tuesday at the Buhinga stadium in Fort Portal as we bid to retain the league crown.

This is a game that fills you with a mix of fear, tension plus excitement regardless of where both teams could be on the league log and it has a history behind.

  • Both teams have had change of names for rebranding purposes as Vipers was previously Bunamwaya Sports club until 2012 while Soana football club became Tooro United at the start of this season and even moved base from Kavumba to Buhinga.
  • It will be the first time the two clubs are meeting outside Kampala & Buganda regions as all previous encounters happened at Kavumba, Nakivubo, Buikwe and Kitende.
  • The car dealers joined the top flight league in 2013 eight years after the Kitende based club had done so and since then, matches between the two have been interesting to watch.
  • Field battles between the two clubs started in 2013 and the Tuesday fixture is set to be the 12th with Vipers commanding superiority numerically having recorded 8 wins, 3 draws and no loss in the previous 11 meetings.
  • The corresponding engagement at Kavumba ended 1-0 in Vipers favour as Dan ‘Muzeeyi’ Sserunkuuma struck a wonderful goal in the 85th minute to break the hosts resistance.
  • Going into the match, Vipers has never lost to Tooro United thus Wasswa Bossa’s team will be looking to record a historic first on Tuesday.
  • Vipers biggest win over Tooro United was a 4-0 drubbing in 2013 when the team from Fort Portal had just joined the topflight league.
  • Tooro United has lost all the previous league encounters they have hosted Vipers hence will be seeking for their first win against the Venoms at home.

Previous meetings at Tooro United’s home:

2017/18:- Tooro United 0-1 Vipers
2016/17:- Tooro United 0-1 Vipers
2015/16:- Tooro United 1-2 Vipers
2014/15:- Tooro United 0-2 Vipers

However, despite the rich history over our opponents, Vipers know well about the threat our hosts pose hence will need a strong performance to overcome them.
