Sports Club Villa is a football club from Kampala in Uganda. They play their home games at the National Stadium. They are named after English side Aston Villa FC.

Overview[edit]

SC Villa is Uganda's leading football club, having won more laurels than all others put together. They won 13 league titles and 7 Ugandan Cup titles. SC Villa was the first Ugandan club to clinch a local 'Double'. That record was extended to six 'Doubles' in 2002. From 1998 through 2004, they won 7 consecutive championship titles.

SC Villa had humble beginnings as Nakivubo Boys. The club was renamed Nakivubo Villa, and finally SC Villa, a.k.a. Jogoo (Big Cockerel). SC Villa won promotion to the top flight of Ugandan football in 1979, storming the local soccer scene hitherto dominated by Express FC, Simba FC and Kampala City Council FC.

Today there is no single local or regional trophy on which SC Villa's name is not inscribed. The club is the most consistent on the continent, featuring in two consecutive finals of the CECAFA Clubs Cup and the CAF Cup in 1991 and 1992, respectively. They play their home games from Mandela National Stadium Namboole.
