Understanding ‘366 Back to Namboole with Cranes’
FUFA has officially launched the campaign for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations to be hosted by Cameroon.
The launch was held at the FUFA House in Kampala on Wednesday, 23rd October 2019 during a special press conference.
The campaign for the first home match between Uganda Cranes and Malawi on 17th November 2019 has been codenamed ‘366 Back to Namboole with Cranes’
Why did FUFA go for ‘366 Back to Namboole with Cranes?
When Uganda Cranes host Malawi at the Mandela National Stadium Namboole on 17th November 2019, it will exactly be 366 days since the National Senior team last played at this stadium.
The match campaign codenamed ‘366 Back to Namboole with Cranes’ has been derived from the date when Uganda Cranes last played against Cape Verde on 17th November 2018, on that day striker Patrick Henry Kaddu scored to confirm Uganda’s berth at AFCON 2019 in Egypt.
Uganda Cranes will open the 2021 AFCON Campaign on 13th November 2019 in Ouagadougou against Burkina Faso.
Let all Uganda Cranes fans say: ‘366 Back to Namboole with Cranes’ on 17th November 2019.
