Upcountry football club vows to play big league next season


Bugoigo Leapards Football Club in the oil rich land Buliisa district is so far taking an early lead on the Kitara Regional League table, with one point a head of Booma FC Masindi then followed by Kiryandongo two points behind the Leopards.

The first ever regional league team out of seven games played have won six with one draw and no loose, this Wednesday they will be challenging their rivals Booma FC at Masindi stadium.

Speaking to our reporter on a phone call, the Club Manager Ahaisibwe Donald Rugadya said that it’s their first and last time to play regional league as he expects the team to be promoted to big league next season.

He also says though the communal club is performing well, with well organized management, it’s operating in bankruptcy state since it doesn’t own any business or sponsors adding that away matches have always tasked them.

Despite of the above challenges, our players are not money orientated since most of them are borne of Buliisa district, however, we also have few players from other district including two from Hoima, two from Biiso and one from Runga, Manager Donald added.

Donald also told our reporter, in case they run shortage of fund on away matches, before setting back they sort themselves and raise the fund needed. In most case our financial support comes from the community, our leaders have not bathered to support us, Donald decried.
