Uganda Premier League defending Champions Vipers Soccer Club unveiled it’s newly refurbished home, St. Mary’s Stadium yesterday. The now modern facility has an artificial surface, refurbished dressing room and more seating capacity.
While addressing media, Vipers’ president Dr Lawrence Mulindwa said; “We had to do whatever that was revealed by the FUFA and CAF teams to improve the quality of the playing surface. We identified the people whom we could work with.”
“This playing surface suits modernity, convenience and time factor lasting for more than 40 years. This is the latest edition of artificial grass – G3. The laying of the artificial surface is the second of the four phases undertaken in the upgrade of St. Mary’s Stadium. Next, we shall have the modern floodlights and the expansion of the Western wing.”
Vipers will usher in their fans to the new stadium with a league opener fixture against new comers Ndejje University.
