In a bid to beat the drop, Express football club has launched a drive aimed at fundraising money for the club as well as bringing fans back and closer to the club.
The event will be held on Friday 23rd March and will include a grill of musical performance from various artists and sports such as football between former players of Express and SC Villa but above all collecting funds to help the club navigate through the remaining part of the season.
In a press conference held today at Wankulukuku, musician and a staunch Expess fan Geoffrey Lutaaya broke down in tears while addressing about the club’s currently status in the league.
“We came up with an idea to help Express come out of the relegation zone. I implore my fellow musicians to come join us. Everyone knows the pain when Express is in trouble. I feel like crying.”
An emotional and teary eyed Geoffrey Lutaaya said.
Makindye West Member of Parliament, Hon. Allan Sewanyana stressed the role and significance of Express FC in the football of Uganda.
“I wish to see Express doing better because Ugandan football has no history without Express. Express has nurtured many talents, represented Uganda on continental level, produced a number of good players among others.”
“I urge fans of the other clubs, Villa, KCCA, Vipers and other well wishers to come and join us, you may not come to enjoy but you can come to support Express. We all know very many giants have been fathered by Express FC namely; SC Villa, Vipers and very many other clubs. We must not sit back to see to see Mukwano Gwa Bangi go down.”
The funds collected from the drive will directly go to the club’s treasury to supplement efforts to beat relegation.
Express are currently sitting in the relegation zone having garnered 19 points with 9 games left and will play their next league game against Vipers soon after the international break on Saturday, 31st March at Kitende
