New KCCA FC chairman Martin Ssekajja says that the club’s main priority is to have a good stadium.
On Sunday, while appearing on a local sports show on 88.5 Super FM, Martin Ssekajja revealed this and highlighted the importance of having a CAF approved stadium.
“We are not just in preparations to have a stadium built but we are going to build a standard one and we have that commitment,” Ssekajja said.Advertisement
“In our term, if we happen to leave without a stadium built, we will have done nothing so building a caf approved stadium is our main priority.”
Midway last year, KCCA launched a five-year strategic plan at dinner held at Golden Tulip in Kampala which included constructing a new stadium for the club.
In an event graced by then KCCA ED Jennifer Musisi, it was revealed that Sh55B will be put aside for what was projected to be a state of the art 7,000-seater.
Since then, it’s not known when the ground breaking ceremony will be held, but it’s expected that the available StarTimes Stadium (Phillip Omondi Stadium) is the one which is going to be renovated and expanded.
Ssekajja also talked about the clubs transfer system and identity.
“We want to hold our identity as a strong club, the players, coaches, fans and the administrators. KCCA FC has to be a different club to the others, when we are on the field of play we are not there for a win but to also entertain the fans in the stands.
“Discipline from our fans has been key and that has always identified us from other clubs because things don’t always come to our side but the fans are always with us therefore we have to keep it running in our regime.”
On the possibility of Lugogo hosting night games, Ssekajja commented that they are doing everything in their own means to acquire CAF standard lights.
He also pointed at the possibility of having WiFi available at Lugogo.
On January transfers before second round, he stated:
“When the season was commencing we lost three of our best players and the replacements have came in slowly and now fit in the system plus the academy graduates who are picking up and results have started coming in and we see no need of any addition in the team unless the head coach and his team are in need.”
Ssekajja replaced Aggrey Ashaba who has been demoted to vice.
