Bbosa backs Betway Muteesa II stadium revamp

There are a number of proverbial phrases used to encourage optimism and a positive can-do attitude in the face of adversity or misfortune.
Express FC seems to have picked up on some in order to make the most of the current Covid-19 enforced break if recent developments at the Betway Muteesa II Stadium are anything to go by.
The club according to CEO Isaac Mwesigwa are in the process of revamping the stadium as part of the club's wider plans to improve match day experience.
The development  has been widely welcome more so by club head coach Wasswa Bbosa who is in his second stint having also previously served as a player.
"Almost everything we have achieved is associated with the ground,” Bbosa said of the club who are six-time league champions the last of which arrived in 2012 with him as an assistant to Sam Ssimbwa.
There's no other stadium that we can call home so  it is important that we make the best of it if it is available," he added.
The club was last season forced to use Kavumba Recreation Center as their home ground for the opening three games of the second round after the playing surface was deemed unplayable by league authorities.
They have also in the past five seasons had to share the ground with various non-sporting activities that often left the playing surface in a sorry state.
Mwesigwa is however now confident the situation has changed for the better ahead of the new season tentatively set for a late October return.
"I would like to appreciate Omumbejja Nalinya for hosting the team for all this time,” new Express CEO Isaac Mwesigwa said in an interview.
“It's been a joyful ride for both parties and in a bid to make it better, we sat and agreed on a few changes we feel will give us a better matchday experience, better training and make it a better home.”
"That is why you see that Wankulukuku management has resorted to renovation and development of the stadium.”
Mwesigwa added: We also agreed on having the training ground just besides the stadium so that we can cut costs of hiring another ground but also do other club activities.
He also promised better match day experience next season: We also agreed that we will exclusively be able to use the stadium with supervision of management and also do maintenance to make sure the pitch remains at the standard required by the federation especially during this wet period.”
“As our fans and stakeholders expect a good matchday experience and a better stadium and expect the team to do better and compete than we have done in the past few years," stated Mwesigwa who replaced Hamza Jjunju as CEO two months ago.
the Betway-sponsored side finished ninth on the 16-team log.
