Vipers SC Faces Botswana Giants in CAF Champions League Preliminaries

Excitement is building for Vipers SC, the reigning champions of the 2022-2023 Uganda Premier League, as they gear up for the 2023-2024 CAF Champions League. The draws for the preliminary round, held in Cairo, Egypt, have paired them against Botswana’s formidable Jwaneng Galaxy FC.

The showdown is scheduled to take place on August 18th or 19th, 2023, at the Francistown Stadium in Botswana. Shortly after, Jwaneng Galaxy FC will travel to Uganda to face Vipers SC again on August 25th or 26th.

The stakes are high, as the winner of these two ties will then advance to face either Djabal Football Club from Comoros or South African Premier League giants Orlando Pirates in the second preliminary round.

Last year, Vipers SC faced challenges in progressing from the group stages of the CAF Champions League. However, under the guidance of their new Brazilian Head Coach, Leonardo Martins Neiva, and the leadership of CEO Dr. Lawrence Mulindwa, the team is determined to make steady progress this time and clinch a treble. They already achieved a double last season under Coach Alex Isabirye’s guidance.
