Shortly after, the club also announced the appointment of CAF B certified Hamza Kalanzi as assistant coach on one year renewable contract.

The club will begin their league campaign on Saturday 1 October away at Nakisunga Saza Ground – Mukono as they take on URA FC.

Consequently, the appeal filed by Onduparaka FC did not succeed and as a result the decisions and sanctions passed by the Competitions Disciplinary Panel on 14th June 2022 is maintained in its entirety.” FUFA statement partly read.
