The Uganda Rugby Union is yet to identify the venue that will host the 2017 Africa Cup Sevens in October.

Kawowo Sports reports that there is a feud between Uganda Rugby Union(URU) and Legends Management over disagreements concerning Africa Cup Sevens hosting rights.

This played out during last Saturday’s national sevens circuit when URU president Andrew Owor and World Rugby’s consultant high-performance manager Peter Harding were locked out of Legends Rugby Grounds.

The top rugby administrator and official were locked out due to misunderstandings between the Rugby governing body and the bar management.

Official sponsors of the circuit, Guinness were also locked out from setting up any branded banners and selling points. Legends manager Eric Malinga was later on summoned by Owor, who explained why he had been locked out.

Legends Rugby ground hosted the Elgon Cup tie between Kenya and Uganda as well as Africa Gold Cup matches.

Kyadondo Rugby Ground has been tipped to host the event to be held in early October.

The Africa Cup 7s will be used as a qualifier for 2018 Sevens World Cup to be held in San Francisco Bay, USA in July.
