WORLD CUP 2014 | Fees stay same for Uganda-Angola

Fans will pay the same as they did for Uganda against Liberia when Angola come to town for another World Cup weekend this Saturday.

Many will welcome the news as it had been feared that Fufa would ride on Uganda’s 1-0 victory over Liberia at the weekend to rake more money from increased rates.

“The entry charges remain the same (UGX 12,000 and 33,000) and tickets will go on market Wednesday morning from the same selling points used last week,” reads in part a statement released by Fufa publicist Rogers Milindwa on Monday.

“Fufa extends gratitude to the fans for showing up in bigger numbers (about 25,000 in a 42,202 seater) at Namboole last Saturday.

“We believe, the results would perhaps not have been the same without their presence and support.”

Uganda are second in Group J on five points, one behind Senegal. The Cranes must beat Angola and Senegal away to progress to the final round of the 2014 World Cup qualification.

Elsewhere, the Liberian national team will stay in Kampala till Wednesday, according to Mulindwa, although, no further explanation was given to that effect.

However, match officials of the game between Uganda and Liberia have all returned home.
