Six of the 15 clubs that will feature in the 2022/23 Uganda Premier League season have changed homes.
SC Villa, URA FC, BUL FC, Arua Hill SC, Onduparaka FC, and Gaddafi FC are the teams in question.
The development was confirmed by the UPL Secretariat on Thursday after releasing the fixtures for the forthcoming season.
UPL record champions Villa who hosted their games at FUFA Technical Center in Njeru last season, will this time around host from Muteesa II Stadium, Wankulukuku.
At Wakulukuku, the Jogoos will share the same home with bitter rivals Express FC – it is the ancestral home for the latter.
URA has also shifted base from the Arena of Visions in Ndejje to Nakisunga Saza Ground in Mukono.
It is BUL that will host its games from FUFA Technical Center this season, the Oil Manufacturers are coming in from Kyabazinga Stadium.
Meanwhile, Arua Hill’s home this campaign will be Green Light Stadium in Arua, the Leopards hosted from Barifa Stadium during their maiden season in the UPL.
Due to hooliganism by their fans during some home games last season, Onduparaka will play its first five home games at Bombo Military Barracks Ground, home of UPDF FC.
Later, the Caterpillars will return to their base Green Light Stadium and share the same grounds with West Nile rivals Arua Hill.
Furthermore, Modern Gaddafi has also switched from the Gaddafi Arena to Kakindu Stadium home to Busoga United FC.
The 2022/23 UPL season will commence on September 30, 2022, and conclude on May 27, 2023.
