The team has since then held drills at different venues including Fast Fusion Indoor Facility and gym, Bugolobi and Kampala Quality playground and Micho is happy with what he has seen so far.

“I am very impressed by the commitment and character of the players in attendence. This is a great start ahead of our first game in the 2023 AFCON Qualifier,” Micho told FUFA website.

“The fitness levels of these players is based on the successful completion of the league after two years of non sporting activities,” Micho added.
