The Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) has confirmed plans to fly the Uganda National Team (Uganda Cranes) to Malawi by chartered flight.
The Cranes will face Malawi in their final AFCON qualifier to be played on 29th March 2021.
The game will come after they host Burkina Faso at Kitende on Wednesday in another qualifier.
According to FUFA, Uganda Airlines will fly the team on one of its bombardiers.
The development was confirmed by FUFA Communications Director, Ahmed Hussein.
“The team will fly out on 28th March 2021 aboard Uganda Airlines Bombardier. It is important for the National Team to travel with a lot of comfort during the current COVID-19 times when you need the entire team to move together for better preparations. Hussein was quoted by FUFA.co.ug.
It will be the second time in this campaign that FUFA has paid for a chartered flight to transport Uganda Cranes.
The opening fixture against Burkina Faso saw Cranes use Uganda Airlines as they picked a valuable point off the West African Giants in Ouagadougou.
The Cranes are currently second in group B on seven points.
