Nyirenda Handed Another URA Test

Sports Nyirenda Handed Another URA Test

Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) have been handed another shot at testing Zambian opposition when they face Zanaco in the CAF Champions League next year.

URA were eliminated from the first round of last year’s competition by Zesco United who beat them 2-0 on aggregate in the preliminary stage after losing by the same margin in Kampala before drawing 0-0 in the return leg in Ndola.

Incidentally, Zesco were coached by Wedson Nyirenda who is now in charge of Zanaco.

URA will host Zanaco, who will be making their return to African club competition for the first time since 2007 when they took part in the Champions League, in the first leg during the weekend of February 12-14 and the Ugandans visit at Sunset Stadium on February 27.

Winner of the preliminary round tie will host ASEC Mimosa of Cote d’Ivoire on March 19-21 and the return leg to be played April 2-4.

Winner in that first round match will face victor either of the US Douala of Cameroon and Sao Tomes champions or Diables Noirs of Congo-Brazzaville and ES Setif from  Algeria in the second round.

Meanwhile, Zesco United are on bye from the preliminary round and will take on either Warri Wolves of Nigeria or Atheletico Olympic of Burundi in the first stage.

And should Zesco qualify to the second-round, they will face either CAPS United of Zimbabwe and Swaziland’s Mbabane Highlanders or winner between Moroka Swallows of South Africa and Pamplemousses of Mauritius in late April.

Winner from that match will qualify to the intermediate round to face a loser from the Champions League pre-group stage in mid-May.
