South Sudan to host International games in Uganda

28 Jan 2019, 08:50

South Sudan will host all its 2019 international games in Kampala, Uganda this according to South Sudan's Football Association (SSFA).

According to SSFA President, Mr. Francis Amin playing in Kampala is cheaper and nearer with the move coming after the national stadium in Juba began reconstruction work on Saturday, which could take up to a year to complete.

"It is cheaper and nearer for us to play in Uganda than moving to Khartoum in Sudan. Besides, we also have several South Sudanese who stay in Uganda and can always come to cheer the teams," Amin told BBC Sport.

Delegates from football's world body were in Juba to oversee the start of the renovations, which are being aided by a FIFA development programme.

Amin said South Sudan's shift to Uganda for 'home' matches would start in March when they are scheduled to host Tunisia in a 2019 U-23 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match which also serves as an Olympic qualifier.

He said they will also be organizing several international friendly matches in 2019 which will also take place in Kampala.

South Sudan achieved independence from Sudan in 2011 and was voted into full membership of Fifa at the world body's annual congress in the Hungarian capital Budapest in 2012.
