The Confederation of African Football has allowed Kampala Capital City Authority to use a different log on their jerseys during the CAF Champions League.

KCCA will display a logo of “Visit Kampala” on the front part of their jerseys in place of usual “StarTimes” during the group matches.

According to CAF’s general secretary, Amr Fahmy, the Ugandan champions will go ahead with their changes in the kit after making a request.

“Reference to the request sent by your club KCCA concerning the publicity of “Visit Kampala” on the front of the players’ jerseys, kindly be informed that the club is authorized to put the above-mentioned publicity during the matches of the Total CAF Champions League 2018 on the front of the players’ jerseys,” Fahmy responded.

Although the club is sponsored by Chinese pay TV giants StarTimes, displaying their logo during the matches would be in conflict with the tournament’s commercial interests and regulations.

Coach Mike Mutebi has led the Ugandan side to the group phase for the first time and they are pooled alongside Esperance de Tunis, Al Ahly and Township Rollers in Group A.
