The Round of 16 of the Stanbic Uganda Cup promises thrilling action following the confirmation of the ties in a draw conducted at the FUFA House, Mengo, on Monday.
The most exciting pairing will see URA FC play host to 10-time winners KCCA FC.

The clash will renew acquaintances between KCCA head coach Abdallah Mubiru and URA’s David Obua, in a tie that will also recall the former’s 3-2 Uganda Premier League victory earlier in the year.

Meanwhile, high-flying Kitara FC will be at home against nine-time winners SC Villa, in another match that promises entertaining action.

The two sides have met twice already in this campaign with Kitara holding the head-to-head edge.

Kitara beat the Jogoo 2-1 in the first half of the UPL, courtesy of Denis Omedi and Living Kabon. Charles Lwanga netted Villa’s consolation.

However, in the second round, Jonah Patrick Kakande scored a late leveller as Villa tied 1-1 with the Royals in Masindi. Brian Aheebwa had given the latter the lead.

In the other all-UPL bouts, league leaders BUL FC will be at home against 10-time winners Express FC, while Busoga United will host NEC FC.

Meanwhile, defending champions Vipers SC have been handed a relatively lighter St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende contest against Regional League side Iganga Young.

Soltilo Bright Stars will host FUFA Big League leaders Police FC, Pajule Lions will be at home to Young Simba FC, while Doves FC will battle Pakwach Young Stars.

It should be noted that all the matches at this stage will be played on a one-leg basis at yet-to-be-confirmed dates between 1st to 7th March.
