Uganda Cranes trip to Dubai will now happen on Monday following a delay in travel clearance.
The team (local based and the technical staff) were initially supposed to travel on Sunday and had embarked on their journey.
However, delay in processing the travel entry clearance to Dubai saw them retreat to their base in Kisaasi.
Of the 26 players are 12 from the StarTimes Uganda Premier League (SUPL).
“The travel plans for Uganda Cranes contingent to Dubai have been rescheduled to Monday 5th October 2020 due a delay in acquiring the travel entry clearance to UAE,” confirmed Fufa Communications Director, Ahmed Hussein.
“However the entire team that passed the Covid-19 tests carried out on Thursday has now travelled back to the Cranes Paradise Hotel in Kisasi where they will spend the night and also observe the SOPs set for the camp by the health officials before flying out tomorrow (Monday).”
