Tooro United will now have to look for an alternative venue after government started the construction works at Buhinga stadium in Fort Portal.

The side, formerly known as Soana FC, shifted their base to the Western town early in the season in a bid to fish for more fans and appeal to the Tooro community.

They previously played their home games at the Kacumba recreational centre in Kampala.

“We have been informed that the government has started construction at the facility and therefore cannot be used,” Uganda Premier League manager Paul Kabaikaramu revealed.

In the same vein, the team is expected to select a new home but the approval depends on the Fufa Club Licensing committee’s inspections.

Tooro is currently seventh on the Uganda Premier League table with 33 points. They host BUL FC next Tuesday in one of their three remaining games.

The project

Last year, the president H. E Yoweri Museveni presided over the ground breaking of the project estimated to cost about eleven million shillings.

The main target of the project is to construct a multi-purpose 30,000 seater to enhance the sports industry in the region.
