The delegation of Uganda Cranes that left Kampala on Friday morning has arrived safely in Mbale.

Using the Uganda Cranes bus, the team departed from Sky Hotel Kampala at 10 a.m and arrived at 2 p.m.

Eastern region delegate Latif Mafuko and Mbale District Football Association chairperson Isaac Musiiwa received the delegation that was led by FUFA Executive Committee member, Samuel Mpiima.

The team then had lunch as they checked in at Mbale Resort Hotel.

Mpiima told that the team traveled well and expect the best in the match against the Eastern region side.

We  traveled well with the Police lead car guiding well.

Football fans in the Eastern  region should expect the best football from the Uganda Cranes team.

I therefore urge the fans to come in big numbers on Saturday at Mbale Municipal Stadium
