The Chairman of Africa Cricket Academy, Stephen Mangongo, is convinced that Uganda can host a World Class Cricket Center of Excellence.
The former Zimbabwe coach has been in the country on a two-day working visit that saw them visit the eastern cricket playing schools of Jinja SSS and Busoga College – Mwiri.
The team also held some informal discussions with the National Council of Sports as well as the Kyambogo University sports department. They were also able to visit the Naguru slum area that has produced some of the best cricket talents in Uganda as well as have a motivational session with the Cricket Cranes.
The purpose of the working visit has been to access the viability of hosting a school of excellence in Uganda.
The growth of the game within the region is a major catalyst in the project as nations within the region require a facility that will help them develop their players into national team players that will compete at the global stage.
