Following the release of the tentative fixtures of the Azam premier league season of 2017/18, URA FC have announced that they have decided to shift from the Mehta stadium in Lugazi where they have been hosting their home games since 2011.
A statement from the club read,
“URA FC’s plans to play home matches at Mandela National Stadium have been finalized after the stadium management granted authority to the club to use their facilities for the home matches.”
