Uganda is gearing up for a momentous occasion as it braces itself for the resumption of the 2026 World Cup qualifiers. With two pivotal home matches against Botswana and Algeria scheduled for June, anticipation is high as the nation eagerly awaits these crucial fixtures.

The Uganda Football Federation (FUFA) has been diligently working behind the scenes to ensure that the matches are hosted at the Mandela National Stadium in Kampala.

This iconic venue, boasting a capacity of 45,000 seats, has undergone significant renovations in recent months to meet the required standards for hosting international matches.

Previously, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) had raised concerns about the stadium’s readiness, prompting calls for Uganda to consider alternative venues.

However, thanks to the concerted efforts of FUFA and the support of national leaders, the stadium is now fully prepared to welcome the Cranes for these vital encounters.

One of the notable enhancements to the stadium is the addition of a state-of-the-art media gallery, capable of accommodating up to 350 journalists.

This facility, equipped with around a hundred workstations, underscores Uganda’s commitment to providing optimal media coverage for the matches and enhancing the overall fan experience.

As Uganda sets the stage for these crucial World Cup qualifiers, there is a palpable sense of excitement and anticipation among football enthusiasts across the nation.

With the support of passionate fans rallying behind them, the Cranes are poised to showcase their prowess on home soil and stake their claim for a spot in the prestigious tournament.

For Ugandan football fans, the upcoming matches represent more than just a chance to witness their national team in action; they symbolize a collective journey towards achieving footballing glory on the world stage.
