It is now official that Kirinya Jinja SSS FC has changed the name to Busoga United Football Club.
The club had been given a green light to change to the new name by the domestic football federation, Fufa, about a month ago but that was just the beginning of the paperwork process.
However, on Tuesday, the club president who also doubles as the head teacher of the main sponsor –Jinja SSS- confirmed that it’s all systems goes.
“We can now confirm that the club will be named Busoga United FC,” she told the media present.
“Jinja SSS is a big school in the region and country at large but felt it better to open the club to more fans out there. We are opening the Jinja SSS gates to the people who live in the region.”
Nyago also announced that His Royal Highness the Kyabazinga of Busoga Wilberforce Gabula IV will officially launch the name next Saturday 27th as more details are released.
