KCCA FC have become a trophy-collecting machine in the last couple of years and the club are not relenting in their pursuit for excellence on and off the pitch.

On August 17, the Uganda Premier League champions saw their chairman Aggrey Ashaba convene a Know-Your-Club meeting with the club’s season ticket holders and fans leaders at StarTimes Stadium Lugogo.

Ashaba reiterated the club’s vision to create an identity with beautiful football while developing players, who can form the cornerstone of the club. “We play to win and the culture of winning is part of our DNA,” he remarked. “Everyone is working at the club from the chairman, players, management and staff must always work, breathe, eat and sleep towards this singular objective.”

The Lugogo-based side have in recent months tied up Schools of Excellence partnerships, a move the club believes will maintain a steady conveyor belt of talent for Mike Mutebi’s side.

The club have signed deals with Kibuli SS, Masaka SS and Old Kampala SS. They have also entered partnerships with Egyptian side El Gouna, where they traded Allan Kyambadde. Ashaba also shared the club’s financials and noted that there had been a drop in the club’s revenues in 2019 compared to 2018, but that was solely because of the prize money the club earned from doing well in the Caf Champions League.

Last season KCCA participated in the Caf Confederation Cup having emerged winners of the Uganda Cup.
