FC Kuban Krasnodar is one of the oldest [founded 88 years ago] football clubs in Russia that was founded as Dynamo of the Krasnodar NKVD but later changed to FC Kuban because of changing politics in the USSR. The team’s colors are yellow [home], and green [away]. FC Kuban club members and fans are commonly known as “Kubantsies.”

Uganda is a country whose love for football is slowly gaining pace, we can only hope that all the other sports including the recently revamped ‘Kwepena’ can also gain pace so as to see Uganda and Ugandans in a much better sport’s position.

Ps. Congratulations Moses Oloya, keep making us proud.
