LUGAZI FC STARTS CONSTRUCTION OF A STADIUM

In August, heavy machinery descended on a 12 acre piece of land, 5km from Lugazi town, in the enclaves of Mabira along Kampala-Jinja highway, to clear the ground and therefore begin a dream – the construction of a stadium which shall be home to LUGAZI FC

LUGAZI FC as a brand has grown in leaps and bounds, which is a remarkable symbol of growth of professional sport in this part of the country, thanks to the collective effort of the management, funders, fans and other stakeholders.

The stadium is envisioned to include; two (2) football pitches [the main and external], an athletics track, netball court, basketball court, boxing ring, administrative offices, accommodation for the camping teams, two conference halls, training center for coaches & referees among other amenities.

Artistic Impression – Arial View of the Stadium Facility

The project shall take form in 3 – 4 phases to completion, depending on the mobilization of funds. Phase one (1) shall kickoff off with groundbreaking activities of the external pitch such as; grading, leveling, compacting, grass planting and construction of the drainage channel, all of which are under way, as illustrated in the collection of pictorials seen here. 

Phase 1 – Grading of the External Football Pitch 

Phase 1 – Levelling & Compacting of External Football Pitch

This shall then prepare ground for erecting of the perimeter fence, enclosing the players’ dressing rooms, pavilion and the administration office.

We dream of one day playing in the top flight competitions which is the primary incentive of planning for these facilities, in preparation for the big stage. Similarly, parallel plans are ongoing for the sports academy, women’s sports competition teams in netball, basketball, football, athletics etc. All these sports disciplines are intended to make the facility a one-stop center for mobilizing and nurturing young sports men & women across the country, starting with the Lugazi community.

Realizing the objective of constructing a stadium is not by any means a light or swift assignment but rather a long term goal requiring galvanized effort of stakeholders over a considerable period of time. Our sponsors, most notably Kawuulu foundation, Electronic Network Services and others have done a tremendous job of supporting the initiative since the inception of the vision. 

In the next phases, we hope to engage more stakeholders, beginning with sports federations, sponsors, funders and sports lovers, far and wide to join us actualize this feat, which as envisaged, shall be a multipurpose sports facility hosting all kinds of sports and games. 

It’s a privilege to have grown up in Lugazi and witnessed all the progress the area has made, over the years. First, as an administrative center from a town to a Municipality, but also in the sports field; to the point of having a popular football club, known across the country, in the name of LUGAZI FC

The glorious history, where Lugazi had highly competitive teams in the Super League like SCOUL FC, Lugazi United FC, featuring topnotch sports personalities like Sadiq Wasswa, Anthony Bongole (Proline FC Coach), Richard Makumbi [Nyamityobora FC Coach], Amasha Henry (Lugazi Municipal FC Coach) among others could have past, but there is renewed optimism for a bright future in this generation, with such developments coming up. 

Evidently, Lugazi still produces crème de la crème national sports persons to date, like Charles Lukwago [KCCA FC], Fahad Bayo [FC Ashdod, Israel], Nicholas Wadada [Azam FC, Tanzania], Feni Ali [Kyetume FC] etc. There is an unambiguous ray of hope for the future ahead of Lugazi and the nation as a whole, which through this stadium project, the initiators intend to harness.

LUGAZI FC MEETS WITH DAVID WALUSIMBI, A LOCAL SOCCER LOVING PERSONALITY AND JERSEYS’ COLLECTOR

Lugazi FC is a home-grown football club of Lugazi [Buikwe District] that dreams of one day participating in the top most tier of football in Uganda. Therefore, the club under competent management, has deliberately set up systems and processes to ensure achievement of this goal. In so doing, it has captured the eye of football loving individuals around the country, and indeed around the world whose interest is predominantly on indigenous [Ugandan] football and that’s how the meeting between Lugazi FC and David Walusimbi happened.

Who is David Walusimbi? David Walusimbi is a Music Producer-cum-Hip Hop artist based in Luweero town with a forte and underlying love for football, especially on the domestic scene. It’s this love for football that fascinatingly drew him to us. While plying his trade, David believes there’s a strong relation between football and music and that is what drives his football promotion along his career.

When he first shot on the soccer social scene, he was spotted with a plethora of Ugandan football jerseys including the Uganda Cranes, Police, Wakiso Giants (black), Luweero United (red), Wakiso Giants (purple), Wakiso Giants (white), KCCA (yellow), KCCA (green), BUL (red) and Bright Stars (Blue). Interestingly, in one of the articles, it was described that, he is still collecting… I believe this to be true, because recently, we were privileged to meet with this noble and charming sports lover to whom we donated our jersey so he can continue with his football love journey and impact on the Uganda’s football scene.

PREMATURE ENDING OF 2019/2020 SEASON DENIES LUGAZI FC QUALIFICATION TO THE BIG LEAGUE

Lugazi FC`s hopes to emerge from the third division to the Big league have been troubled as,on Wednesday 20th-may-2020 FUFA decided to end all its competitions that have been on halt close to two months due to the Covid-19 pandemic

FUFA applied article 18 of the FUFA Competitions rules to decide the fate of both the Katonga group and Ssezibwa group

Article 18(1) states that, where the league format due to circumstances of force majeure fails to be completed within the season, the league winner shall be determined as follows:

a) Before every Club has completed its first round fixture the league shall be declared null and void.

b) Where all the Clubs in the league have completed the first round fixture but less than 75% league games have been played, the table standings at the end of the first round shall be considered as the final table standings of the league.

c) Where at least one club has played more than 75% of the league games, the following formula shall be used by TOC to determine the table positions for the respective group:

d) A total number of points earned from the number of games played multiplied by the total number of games supposed to be played divided by the number of games played.

In this case, Buikwe Red Stars FC from Ssezibwa group had played 15 games out of the 20 games which are supposed to be played which is equivalent to 75%

Therefore, Ssezibwa group table leaders Luweero United FC and Katonga group table leaders Buwambo United FC will face off in the regional playoffs before tussling out Kampala Regional League champions in the promotional playoffs to the Big League next Season. This leaves Lugazi  FC in the second Place in a no promotion zone.

LUGAZI FC FANS DONATE FOOD TO THE PLAYERS.

In an effort to support the players during this lockdown to fight the Corona Virus, Lugazi FC fans through Buikwe District COVID-19 Task Force, donated Rice, Maize Flour and Beans to the team.

Lugazi  FC Chairman handing over the food on behalf of the fans to the RDC Madam Kagaayi JaneFrances and LC5 Chairperson Mr. Kigongo Mathias (in suit).

While handing over the food to the RDC who heads the District COVID-19 Task force, Lugazi FC Chairman Eng. Abdul Kawuulu Mwanje revealed that the donations have come through the fans and the well-wishers of the club.

‘’Our players mostly survive on allowances and other contributions done mainly when the league is running, but as we all know there are no sports activities taking place worldwide, it’s obvious that they (players) must be doing not well financially, that’s why the fans have come out with a helping hand’’

The mission of the Foundation is to raise awareness about the dire conditions in hospitals, schools and refugee asylums in Uganda, where displaced migrants from the surrounding war-torn countries of Sudan and the DRC have been welcomed with open arms.

‘’We are very honored to be a part of this cause. Lugazi  is a youthful sports club that requires promotional support. We are greatly humbled to be your ambassadors and we promise to work together to change the current face of sports in the community.
