Football | Cecafa Kagame Cup

Cecafa switches games from Namboole



Cecafa Tusker Cup organisers have succumbed to pressure following the despicable conditions at Namboole and moved Saturday games to two other stadiums.

Heavy rains in the past days have seen games played on a rather unplayable Namboole turf and the condition seemed to get out of hand oon Thursday but the two games went ahead nonetheless.

But something had to be done. “Namboole is in bad shape and we want to give it breathing space,” said Nicholas Musonye, Cecafa general secretary, at a hastily organized news conference on Friday morning in Kampala.

“We want to have a good climax to the tournament and that means having a good stadium.”

Although Musonye said time was not on their side regarding Friday games involving Uganda vs South Sudan and Kenya vs Ethiopia, which will still be played at Namboole, those scheduled for Saturday will be played at Lugogo and Wankulukuku Stadiums respectively.

Quarterfinal matches on Monday will also be played at Lugogo but Tuesday’s involving Cranes will return to Namboole as organisers think by then the stadium will have got the much needed rest.

Musonye intimated that they had agreed with SuperSport regarding shifting their machines to Lugogo after Friday’s games.

The last group matches and the first quarterfinal on Monday will also be live from Lugogo before live action returns to Namboole on Tuesday.
