The Date: May 1st, 2024
The Contest: BUL FC vs. Vipers SC
The Time: 4pm
The Venue: Namboole Stadium

In what promises to be a mouthwatering encounter, Vipers SC battle BUL FC in a StarTimes Uganda Premier League showdown with both sides glueing their eyes on the table leadership. 

Instead of the usual Fufa Technical Center, Njeru where BUL hosts its games, the Wednesday tie will happen at the historical Mandela National Stadium, Namboole.

The game, along with the floodlights affair between KCCA FC and SC Villa, will act as test contests for the stadium as it seeks approval from continental football custodians, Confederation of African Football (CAF).

Meanwhile, Vipers against BUL will see two sides tied on 46 points, contend for victory which will see them assume top-spot.

Current leaders Kitara FC drew 1-1 with Mbarara City FC on Tuesday to leave them on 48 points at the summit.

Vipers will eye revenge against the Jinja-based outfit who beat them 3-2 earlier in the season at the St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende. 

Yunus Sentamu and Mohamed Salem netted the Venoms’ consolations with Nicholas Mwere, Lawrence Tezikya and Ibrahim Mugulusi scoring for Bul.

Away at the FUFA Technical Center last season, it ended in a 1-1 draw, with Karim Watambala’s late equaliser proving pivotal in our lead to the title.

Statistically, the Venoms are ahead having won 16 times, drawn on six occasions and lost just thrice, scoring 37 goals against 19 in the previous 25 league encounters between the two clubs.
