Following the passing of Ndejje University FC head coach Raymond Timothy Komakech, the Pepsi University Football League game between the latter and Kyambogo University has been postponed.
Komakech, who was also part of the Ndejje ICT staff, succumbed to kidney failure at Kiruddu Hospital on Wednesday.
And to allow the team and university ample time to grieve, the University Football League secretariat has pushed their second leg bout with Kyambogo to Friday this week.
"Following the passing away of the Ndejje University Football Club Head Coach, Komakech Raymond, Ndejje University has requested for their game scheduled for Friday 27th October 2023 against Kyambogo University to be postponed to allow them to mourn and bury their coach," a statement from UFL said.
