KCCA are making a comeback to Africa’s premier soccer club competition after their 2018 group stage debut when they finished third.
 
The Lugogo side that same year was eliminated at the play-off round by Congo’s AS Otoho in the CAF Confederation Cup.
 
It will be continental débutantes Proline this time flying Uganda’s flag in the Confederation Cup.
 
Coach Mike Mutebi will not be short of rehearsal time having played Wakiso Giants in a Super Eight tournament shortly before flying out.
 
KCCA will be high on confidence after winning the CECAFA Club Championship at a time when most of the other teams were on break.
 
En route to the title in Kigali, they overcame seasoned sides like Green Eagles, Rayon Sports, Bandari and Azam.
 
New signings to miss out KCCA will, however, have to bear with the absence of their new signings Erisa Sekisambu from Gor Mahia, Simon Serunkuma from Tooro United,
John Revita from Express, who all lack CAF licenses.
 
New signings like Bernard Muwanga, on loan from KCCA, Yusuf Mukisa from SC Villa, Sula Sekamwa from Paidha, Sharif Magoola from Kiboga Young and Andrew Isiagi will be some of the players to watch in Proline.
 
Proline’s stars will also include Bright Anekanu and Mustafa Mujuzi, who are fresh from national team duty.
 
Proline might be just bouncing back to the top flight but they are no pushovers if their list of achievements is anything to go by.
 
They were Big League champions before winning the country’s second-biggest prize- the Uganda Cup.
