Newly promoted Uganda Premier League outfit Wakiso Giants Football Club has started works on their proposed home ground ahead of the new Uganda Premier League.

The ground is in Wakiso district at the resource center of Wakiso Head Teachers Association (WAKISHA) base.

The WAKISHA ground is also known as the Kabaka Kyabaggu Sports Stadium, named after one of Buganda Kingdom’s kings, the twenty-fifth (25th).

Kyabaggu Kabinuli was Kabaka of the Kingdom of Buganda from 1750 until 1780.

The club which took over Kamuli Park at the start of last season hosted their games while in the FUFA Big League at the Kyabazinga Stadium in Bugembe on the outskirts of Jinja.

Originally, Wakiso Giants Football Club had requested the FUFA supreme organ, the Executive to host their home games while in the FUFA Big League which was turned down.

They were however advised to wait until the 2019/2020 season to shift base to any venue of their choice within Wakiso district.
