Stanbic Uganda Cup

Kataka FC vs KCCA FC

Mbale Municipal Stadium

Monday 20th February 2023

KCCA FC visit Kataka FC in the round of 32 of the 49th edition of the Stanbic Uganda Cup.

Both sides previously met at the round of 16 in 2016/17 season and KCCA FC were 5-2 winners.

Brian Majwega is the only surviving member from the KCCA FC side that started that game against Kataka FC in 2017.

At the previous round of 64, KCCA FC were 3-0 winners against Kampala Junior Team while Kataka FC progressed to the round of 32 after an investigation by FUFA showed that Gorilla Highlands SC that had initially won against Kataka FC had used ineligible players and thus were replaced by the Mbale side for the round of 32.

KCCA FC are currently top of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League on 32 points from 15 games while Kataka FC are 10th on 20 points from 17 games in the FUFA Big League.

Morley Byekwaso

We need to treat the game with utmost respect. We want to progress to the round of 16 and we can only do so by winning against our opponents. We welcome Kizza Mustafa and Peter Magambo back. They know this club through and through and will be good additions for us in the remaining part of the season. New signing Hassan Mubiru is also part of the squad and hopefully he can hit the ground running. My players know that they have to take each opportunity handed to them with both hands and have got to compete for their position on the team.
