clinic geneva;”>According to an official who travelled with the team, Uganda Cranes on Tuesday used Mirere hotel small gardens to have a sketchy training because they couldn’t access the pitches but also “on Monday, the ground we had to use was also to be used by three other teams”.
“Since it is a rainy season, by the time we had to come-in to use the ground, it was very muddy,” the official said.
However, the CECAFA local organising committee, according to reports from Nairobi, is working hard to address this issue.
In relation to the Kenyan situation, last year when Uganda hosted the same tournament at Namboole stadium where all the matches were scheduled to be played, later the committee was forced to move some games to Lugogo and Wankulukuku because of Namboole’s muddy state.
In a related development, the players are complaining about the weather which is too cold.
“It may not be an excuse but it is too cold this way,” said one of the players.
CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup kicks off today, Wednesday, with Kenya taking on Ethiopia in group A opener game and Uganda will officially start the competition on Friday as they will be taking on Rwanda.
