By Vision Reporter FUFA has released match charges for the CECAFA senior challenge cup starting Saturday to December 2 in Kampala and Mbale. Nakivubo stadium manager Eugene Semujju said yesterday that soccer spectators who have supported all FUFA international and local matches would not be charged highly. "It is a fee that cuts across the soccer spectrum and affordable to all soccer fans," said Semujju. The opening match between Uganda Cranes and Ethiopia will be at sh5000, sh8000 and sh15,000 in terraces, covered stands and pavilion respectively. The other group A matches involving Cranes will be at sh4000, sh6000 and sh10,000 while the rest of the games will cost sh3000. In Mbale Municipal stadium, it is a flat rate of sh3000 for all matches. "Mbale football fans have always supported FUFA activities and sh3000 is affordable," said Semujju. There will be no floodlight matches at Nakivubo like last year during CECAFA club cup, however Cranes games would be telecast live on local stations, WBS TV and UTV. Last year South Africa's Direct To Broadcaster (dTb) provided live TV coverage in East Africa but this time CECAFA delayed to sign the agreement. At the samet ime FUFA yesterday named six hotels in Kampala that will accommodate group A foreign teams and match officials during the CECAFA senior challenge cup. FUFA secretary Godfrey Kisekka told The New Vision that they have already made part-payments to the hotels. "We have made part payment to the hotels and we are working together with Nakivubo stadium to see that the tournament will be a success," said Kisekka. Reste Corner Hotel in Muyenga will host the CECAFA officials while Havana will accommodate referees. Tourist Hotel is for Burundi, Somalia will stay in Marvin Hotel, Natete and Lusam Inn for Djibouti and Lions Hotel for Ethiopia. Cranes rejected Lugogo and will now stay in a hotel. Lions will stay Manpower Development Centre while Kenya, Rwanda and Eritrea will be allocated hotels in Mbale town. Ends.
