Black Pirates Rugby Club will be able to start using its home ground effective next year.

 

This is after work started on their new home at Kings Park Sports Centre located in Kakajo Zone, Bweyogerere in Wakiso district.

“We expect to be using this pitch by the next year, but I can assure you we shall play our 2017 Uganda Cup here,” Pirates chairman Edmond Owor said.

Pirates under Kings Park Limited signed a partnership with the family of the late Eng. Samson Iga a former trustee of Wankulukuku Stadium.

 

"The Kings Park is going to be the home of Ugandan Rugby and this private partnership is going develop even other sports disciplines like swimming, basketball, Volleyball and tennis,” Owor added.
