After several months of extensive renovations, Uganda’s iconic Nakivubo Stadium is poised to host its first match, signaling a new chapter for the historic venue. The stadium, which has undergone significant upgrades, will officially reopen on June 1, 2024, with an eagerly anticipated friendly match.

The reopening will feature a thrilling encounter between Kitara FC and URA SC, two prominent teams in the Ugandan Premier League.

This match promises to be a spectacle, not just for the football on display but also for the sense of history and rivalry it encapsulates.

Spectators keen to witness this landmark event will need to purchase tickets, which are priced between 50,000 and 150,000 Ugandan shillings.

This friendly match is more than just a game; it represents a reunion and a chance for URA SC to seek revenge.
