URA FC will begin their Uganda Premier league campaign on Friday against UPDF FC at the Arena of Visions Stadium.

The Revenue collectors come into this game after their CAF Confederation adventure was ended by Egyptian side Al Masry at the second round of the qualifiers.

UPDF FC on the other hand have managed to garner four points from their opening two league games. They shocked defending champions Express FC 1-0 and a 1-1 draw with Onduparaka in Arua.

The Army side however had their game against Mbarara postponed due to a heavy downpour in Bombi.
