 Goalkeeper Charles Lukwago says KCCA FC is hungry for more success.
 
“The morale of the team is high since we want to compete favourably on the local scene, regional and Africa levels. We believe we still have the hunger to win more trophies for the club. It won’t be easy but at least we learned something from last season's performance," stated Lukwago.
 
The skipper revealed this ahead of KCCA's season where they will have to defend the local league, take part in Stanbic Uganda Cup, play in the CECAFA Kagame Cup and also represent the country in the CAF Champions League.

They join Zesco United of Zambia, the Democratic Republic of Congo duo AS Vita and Motema Pembe as other invited teams that have already confirmed their participation.
 
Hosts Rwanda will be represented by Rayon Sports, APR and Mukura, while Gor Mahia and Bandari are expected to represent Kenya.
 
A final list including teams from Somalia, Eritrea, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Sudan, and South Sudan is expected to be released in the course of the week.
 
The winner of the annual tournament will walk home with prize money worth $30,000 (sh 112m) while runners and third best team receive $20,000 (sh74.9m) and $10,000(sh37m).  Azam FC is the defending champions having defeated Simba 2-1 last year in the final.
