Vipers SC were Saturday crowned champions of the 2021/2022 Star Times Uganda Premier League.
The Venoms completed the season in style with a 5-0 victory over already relegated Police FC in their last match played at St. Mary’s stadium in Kitende.
Vipers were already declared winners of this year’s edition of the championship two weeks ago, but they were only waiting for the crowning to celebrate their fifth title win in the club history.
The crowning ceremony was presided over by the FUFA President, Moses Magogo and FUFA third Vice President Florence Nakiwala Kiyingi. Vipers Chairman Lawrence Mulindwa also attended the ceremony.
Milton Karisa and Bobos Byaruhanga netted a brace each, while Yunus Sentamu also got his name on the score sheet for Vipers.
Police FC and former Uganda Cranes retiring midfielder Tonny Mawejje was also honoured with a standing ovation in the 6th minute in respect for his contribution to football.
Vipers SC could still win their first ever double as they are in the final of the Stanbic Uganda Cup where they will face BUL FC next month. Vipers SC also took the league titles for the seasons of 2010, 2015, 2018 and 2020.
