Kawempe Muslim are 2023/24 FUFA Women Super League Champions

Kawempe Muslim Ladies FC are the Champions of the 2023/24 FUFA Super League season after overcoming Kampala Queens FC on the final day of the season.

In the game played on Sunday at the Kawempe Muslim Valley Ground and watched by a mammoth crowd, the hosts earned a 2-0 win to clinch the title.

An impressive number of fans turned up to bear witness of the fine finish to what has been a closely contested season.

FUFA EXCO Member Ronnie Kalema was the guest of honour and also oversaw the crowning moment to the Champions.

Other dignitaries included FUFA CEO Edgar Watson, FUFA Deputy CEO-Football Decolas Kiiza, Uganda Women Football Associtation (UWFA) Chairperson Margret Kubingi and Crested Cranes coach Sheryl Botes among others.

The first half saw Kampala Queens dominate in the opening exchanges but could not find the breakthrough.

Hadijjah Babirye had the ball in the back of the net after 15 minutes but her effort was cancelled for offside.

Both teams made changes before the break with Kawempe replacing Mary Kabaculeezi with Allen Nassaazi while Winfred Kwatulira got injured and was replaced by Asia Nakibuuka for Kampala Queens.

In the second half, the hosts came back better and indeed utilized their chances.

First, it was Agnes Nabukenya who struck home from a well taken free kick in the 67th minute.

Substitute Nassaazi doubled Kawempe’s advantage with her headed effort beating goalkeeper Daisy Nakaziro.

Victory meant Kawempe Muslim ended the season with 40 points while Kampala Queens stopped at 36 points.

This is the fifth League title for Kawempe Muslim in history, but their first since the name changed to FUFA Women Super League in 2019.
