StarTimes Uganda premier league
Onduparaka vs Tooro United, Arua
Onduparaka automatically qualified to the Uganda premier league (UPL) in the 2015/16 season in what proved to be their best ever football season.
The Caterpillars also made it to the FUFA Uganda Cup final but were beaten by an experienced Vipers SC side 3-1 at the Nakivubo stadium in 2016.
They were also beaten by Busoga United in the Fufa Big league final. Since then, the club has not lived under fear of relegation –occupying 5th, 4th and 6th position respectively in the last three topflight seasons.
Against Tooro United this Wednesday at Green light stadium where their UPL journey started, Onduparaka will be marking 100 premier league games since promotion and surprisingly, they will be playing against a side they faced for their first top flight game.
Starting with a barren stalemate against Soana in Arua, the West Nile side went the whole of their maiden topflight season unbeaten at home. Leo Adra was the first coach after replacing Allan Kabonge who had stepped aside after guiding the side to promotion.
Busoga United that earned promotion in the same season with Onduparaka and Proline achieved their 100 UPL milestone yesterday against Express. In the 99 UPL games played, Onduparaka has 41 wins, 31 draws and 27 losses.
