Why Blacks Power formerly Bukedea town council shifted to Lira

Why Blacks Power formerly Bukedea town council shifted to Lira

Blacks Power FC have formally changed their home grounds from Emokori in Bukedea district to the Aki Bua Stadium in Lira ahead of the 2021/22 FUFA Big League (FBL) division

Originally founded in Bukedea district, Eastern Uganda as Bukedea Town Council, but changed identity to Blacks Power for self-evident reasons stated by the club CEO.

Samuel Opio who is the Club CEO for transparency explained that they were incorrectly understood to be receiving financial support from the region’s town council because of their name, which was not the case.

Opio says the resolution to move the club to Lira was carefully reached following an evaluation of the financial advantage it would bring to the club was more.

“Football runs on money and to maintain a team in the league requires a huge financial inflow, that is a fact,” Opio revealed in an interview with Football256.

“We do not have any sponsor, we only survive on mainly two individuals who use their own salaries for running club activities,”

The Blacks Power CEO further emphasized that moving to play in Lira means that the team is looking for all possible means to assume financial support in terms of gate collection and other avenues.

“While in Bukedea, we failed to get any strong support from the community in terms of gate collection and direct support to the team,”

“When we had games at home, many people did not even want to pay money to watch the team, instead, they would want to watch for free,” Opio further explained.
