KCCA FC are the champions of the 2018/2019 StarTimes Uganda Premier League after playing out a one-all draw against Ndejje University on Tuesday at the Arena of visions in Ndejje.

This is their 13th domestic top tier title and fifth in seven years. KCCA FC had donned on their third kit for the first time and walked to glory. The new kit is all-light green plus red stockings with labels of sponsors emblazoned in respective areas.

Anwar Ntegge scored first for the home side before second half substitute Sadam Juma cancelled out his efforts. Albeit KCCA FC gaining champions status, Ndejje though are in the brink of getting relegated to the second tier - FUFA Big League.

KCCA’s gaffer Mike Mutebi heaped loads of praise on his own side for keeping eyes on the prize. “In the mid-season we had lots of disappointments especially being ejected out of the Uganda Cup by a lower tier team. We managed to put ourselves together and much credit goes to players themselves,” Mutebi said adding that they are ready to defend the title next season.

After 28 games, KCCA FC bagged 60 points, seven above second placed Vipers who are also former champions with just two games to wind up the season. KCCA first won the Premier League in 1976 ever since its initiation in 1949.

They defended the trophy in 1977, won it again in 1981, 1983, 1985, 1991, 1997, 2008, 2013, defended it in 2014, lifted it again in 2016 and defended it in 2017.
