The 2023/24 FUFA Big League season will officially kick off today Thursday 21st September as Booma FC hosts Jinja North United at the Masindi Stadium.
Both sides come into a new season with new head coaches. Mark Twinamatsiko replaced Fred Alinaitwe at Booma whereas Sadick Ssempigi was appointed as the new man at Jinja North.
Twinamatsiko believes the club has done enough preparation to stake a claim for this season’s promotional slot.
“We have prepared so well, the players plus the technical team are ready to give the best as we embark on our seasonal target which is promotion to the top tier.”
