KCCA’s quest for a historic CAF Champions League group stage slot has been given a touch of class.

Fashion has taken centre stage as Mike Hillary Mutebi’s side seeks to eject their Ethiopian opponents St George from the continental race.

KCCA take on St George on Saturday in a match either side must win to progress to the group stage. The first leg ended 0-0 in Addis Ababa.

Going by the way KCCA is lately going about its business, you get the impression that they want to neatly kick the Ethiopians out of contention.

You would easily mistake KCCA’s youthful side for a group of models as they left for the first leg.

Forget your usual tracksuits or ordinary suits common with sports teams on foreign travel.

KCCA were smartly clad in matching black sweat shirts and casually stylish khaki skin pants.

These were rounded off with equally attractive black and white sneakers. Hours before departure for Ethiopia there was also need to cool nerves.

This was taken care of with a movie at Century Cinemax at Kamwokya’s plush Accacia Mall.

“There is more to football than what happens on the pitch. You also have to make the boys feel good before and afterwards,” explained a member of the club’s media team Patrick Ochieng.

This touch of class has partly been attributed to the new CEO Josephine Namukisa who has been in the position for almost a year.

The club management also ensures that the team’s concentration is at its best before big matches. This is taken care of with a camp.

That is why three days to Saturday’s match the team will camp in what Ochieng describes as “a good hotel.”

For last month’s preliminary return leg against Madagascar’s CNaPS Sport KCCA stayed at the cool Eureka Place hotel in Ntinda.
