Mbale Heroes shifts home ground from San Siro to Islamic University play grounds.
Mbale Heroes football club has officially confirmed they have left San Siro playgrounds and will temporarily host their games from Islamic University in Uganda in Mbale city as they look for a new home.
Mbale Heroes FC has revealed this in a letter dated 27th that was written to the Eastern Region Football Association (ERFA) informing them about the new changes from San Siro.
Mbale Heroes PRO Chris Boutron Omony says the government has lifted its ban on activities and asked Mbale Heroes to vacate their facility so that they use it for relocation of street kids.
“I therefore report to you that the government lifted its ban and expressed interests in using their facility which among other things will see them relocate street kids to the same facility which outright will jeopardize our footballing activities,” that’s part of the letter.
Mbale Heroes players will also not be able to camp at San Siro as they did in the first round and the team management has reportedly resolved to relocate the camp back to Bungokho sub county headquarters, where they used to camp at big-league before they were relegated to Regionals.
They also reportedly requested to use Bungokho Sub County playground as their home ground for the second round but Mafuko Rauf, the general secretary EFRA says the field was inspected and rejected because it has no face.
Mbale Heroes starts the second round of the Eastern Region league top of the Bukedi group table with 26 points, two ahead of their rivals Admin FC, Tororo based. They are now aiming at leading the Bukedi group table and beat the Nile group winners in the final to gain automatic promotions.
