Uganda: Simba F.C confident of continental tie

URA FC won the Uganda Super League title on Tuesday with a 2-1 victory over closest rivals KCC FC.

However, as the taxmen were celebrating their fourth league title, there was also joy at Bombo after army side Simba players learnt that they would represent Uganda in the CAF Confederations Cup.

Domestic football body FUFA resolved to compel league champions URA to go for the 2012 CAF Champions League, the biggest club competition in Africa.

The decision was taken in a FUFA executive meeting in Kampala. The possibility of URA winning the Bell Uganda Cup was also considered.

FUFA vice president (technical) Livingstone Kyambadde said, "We want to take our best team to the CAF Champions League."

URA is up against Simba in the final of local football’s second prestigious event at Nakivubo on July 11.

In the event of a double, URA would have the liberty of choosing which competition to go for. But FUFA’s decision leaves the tax collectors with no choice but to represent the country in the Champions League.

Either KCC or Bunamwaya will finish second in the league but according to FUFA, whether Simba win the Cup final or not, they will represent Uganda in the Confederations Cup.
