Following an 18 year career, one of Uganda’s finest football talents ever, Steven Bengo in September 2019 called time on a glittering career that promised so much but delivered quite a little.
For his contribution to Uganda’s football, Sports Unlimited together with the Steven Bengo Initiative have organised a testimonial match to celebrate the career of Bengo, with the game scheduled for 20th December 2019, at the Kabaka Kyabaggu stadium, Wakiso.
The testimonial will be played between SC Villa, the club at which he first cut his career at and Wakiso Giants, his last club before he retired from active playing. There will also be a curtain raiser between friends of Bengo and Ugandan celebrities.
All proceedings from the testimonial match will go towards developing and nurturing undiscovered talent through the Steven Bengo Initiative.
During his active playing days, Bengo won a number of trophies and personal accolades including two CECAFA Championships, two Uganda Premier League titles, two Uganda Cups, among others.
His career saw him play for SC Villa, URA FC, KCCA FC, Soana FC (now Tooro United), Express FC and Wakiso Giants in Uganda, as well as turn out for Yanga Africans FC in Tanzania.
He also represented Uganda at both youth and senior levels.
