Match: BUL FC Vs Police FC

Venue: Kyabazinga Stadium – Bugembe

Date: October 22, 2021

Kick off time: 3:00pm

BUL FC get their 2021/22 Uganda Premier League campaign under way on Friday afternoon when they host Police FC at Kyabazinga stadium in a 3pm kick-off.

The Eastern Giants were not in action on match day one after SC Villa was scrapped off from the final UPL fixtures, but their Friday opponents played to a 0-2 loss to Vipers in that round.

BUL FC closed the preceding season with a positive run of form, winning five of their last seven competitive matches and their willpower to carry forward that impressive streak is evident.

And here comes a visitor they often beat.  BUL FC have six wins on record yielded from their seven immediate past meetings with Police.

However, the Eastern Giants fell to the cops in their solitary meeting last season.

The visitors walk into this match languishing in 14th place whilst BUL FC rank 8th on the log even before kicking a ball in this new campaign.

Team News
