Kampala Regional Football Association has officially released the road map for the 2017/18 season.
In a press conference organized at FUFA House on Friday, the region vice chairman Peter Nkugwa who was joined by the CEO Isaac Ssengendo and media committee member Meddie Ssengendo underlined the bold intention of the association to organize all the football activities of the region to perfection.
