KCCA win Uganda Cup
Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) FC have won the 2017 Uganda Cup, beating Zombo side Paidha Black Angels 0-2 this afternoon at the Betway Green Light Stadium in Arua district.
Strikes by Geofrey Sserenkuma and Derrick Nsibambi in either half respectively ensured that the Kasasiro boys did not only complete their first ever double in the history of Ugandan football but also won their first Uganda Cup trophy since 2004.
Mike Mutebi’s side has won the title for the ninth time, together with SC villa. Express are record champions having won it 10 times. KCCA failed to achieve the double when they lost the finals to SC Villa in 1983, 2014, and Express in 1985.
The Azam Uganda Premier League champions were favourites to win the game against the FUFA Big League side whose fans thronged the stadium in thousands while hundreds of KCCA fans also braved the over 700km journey to cheer their team. KCCA Executive Director, Jennifer Musisi and Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago were also in attendance.
