A team from the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (Fufa) joined by the Vipers’ Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Simon Njuba, stadium manager, Edward Junior Mulindwa and the club sporting director, Charles Masembe have inspected the St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende a prerequisite ahead of the upcoming FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifiers slated to kick off in June this year.
The Vipers’ trio was joined by Fufa deputy CEO – Football Decolas Kiiza Hantali and Ivan Kintu Bayige (Fufa club licensing manager) for a guided tour around the facility.
This is the first stage of the well phased inspection guide which will culminate into a report that will immediately be presented to Caf and Fifa prior to the commencement of the FIFA 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
The playing area, team dug-outs, VIP section, general stands, media tribune, dressing rooms, Caf and Fifa officials’ offices, referees rooms, dispensary, lavatories, parking lot, entry as well as exit routes, ambulances’ area, stadium score board were all inspected.
A detailed report will be sent to Caf and Fifa who are expected to make an urgent follow up with yet another team for re-inspection before the final verdict will be officially made.
The development comes in the wake of a tranquil campaign where the St Mary’s Stadium Kitende hosted three high profile Caf engagements in the recently concluded Afcon 2021 qualifiers, the Caf Champions League and Confederations Cup.
Cranes hosted the last two matches of the Afcon 2021 qualifiers against South Sudan and Burkina Faso at the St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende.
