The campaign for the first home match between Uganda Cranes and Malawi on 17th November 2019 has been code-named ‘366 Back to Namboole with Cranes’
When Uganda Cranes host Malawi at the Mandela National Stadium Namboole on 17th November 2019, it will exactly be 366 days since the Cranes played at this stadium and won that match 1-0 against Cape Verde to book a successive berth back to the AFCON.
Partick Kaddu scored the game’s solitary goal.
The campaign name has been derived from the fact that it will be exactly 366 days since the Cranes last played at Namboole Stadium.
The campaign kicks off with an away fixture in Ouagadougou against Burkina Faso on the 13th November 2019 before the home game on 17th November 2019 with Malawi.
