Sports Club Villa is an association football club from Kampala in Uganda. They play their home games at Mandela National Stadium in Namboole.[1]

Overview[edit]

SC Villa has won more laurels than all other Ugandan football clubs combined. They have won 16 league titles and 9 Ugandan Cup titles. SC Villa was the first Ugandan club to clinch a local double, in 1986. That record was extended to six "Doubles" in 2002. From 1998 through 2004, they won seven consecutive championship titles.[2]

Today there is no single local or regional trophy on which SC Villa's name is not inscribed.[citation needed] The club has played in two consecutive finals of the CECAFA Clubs Cup and the CAF Cup in 1991 and 1992, respectively. The club trains at Villa Park in Kampala. Their 1992 CAF Cup appearance was the first appearance of a Ugandan team in a continental cup final, but they lost the final 3–0 to Nigeria's Shooting Stars over two legs.

SC Villa had humble beginnings in 1975, playing under the name 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, joining the local soccer scene hitherto dominated by Express FC, Simba FC, and Kampala City Council FC.[2]
