Uganda Revenue Authority Sports Club is a Ugandan football team based in Kampala. The club plays in the Ugandan Premier League and was founded in 1997.[1] They have won the Ugandan Premier League four times and the Uganda Cup three times.

History[edit]

URA merged with Lyantombe FC in 2001. URA had been excluded from the Western League.[2] Lyantombe, cup finalists in 2000, didn't raise enough money to continue playing in the Buganda Super mini-league. The parties agreed URA would pay the registration fee and take over Lyantombe's place in the league.[3] After promotion, the team took the URA name and began play in the Buganda mini-league.[4]

The club's first season in the top flight was 2002. They have been one of the most successful teams in the league since their promotion, having never finished in the bottom half of the table.
