Vipers SC have been paired with neighbours Wakiso Giants FC in the Round of 16 of the 2022/23 Stanbic Uganda Cup edition.

This one-legged tie slated for the Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium, will make it three encounters between the regional rivals in the current season.

In the most recent double meetings, spoils have been shared on both in the Uganda Premier League. It was 1-1 away, and a barren draw at St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende.

The last 16 fixture will be played between March 11th and 17th, adding to an already stacked Vipers’ list of matches.

The bout will provide a chance for the Venoms to reach a third successive final, and an opportunity of winning a second Cup in that period.

Currently, Vipers is gearing up for the second leg of the CAF Champions League game against East African rivals Simba SC in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
