After three successful spells in Uganda Premier League, Uganda’s top tier league, it is without doubt that Jinja-based side Kirinya Jinja SSS FC has become a household name among lovers of the beautiful game.

Kirinya Jinja SSS FC came up as an amalgamation of two Jinja sides; Jinja SSS FC and Kirinya FC. In their debut season, the Kyabazinga Stadium in Bugembe was their home turf for two seasons before they shifted to their current home in Jinja town at the Mighty Arena for the 2018/2019 season.

Reports reaching Skizar indicate that after a 6-months wait, the ‘school boys’ have finally been cleared by the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) to rebrand to Busoga United Football Club.

Sources from inside say the move is aimed at changing the way fans perceive the team. It is on record that fans see the team as a school team and as thus, Busoga United FC is expected to bring out the picture of a bigger club; the power house of Busoga Region.

Congratulations Busoga United FC.
