First team >> IVAN BUKENYA



Preferred Position: Defender
Nationality: Uganda
Past Clubs: Proline FC, Arbil SC, Kaizer Chiefs

Bukenya began his football journey in July 2007 during the visit of Rio Ferdinand. He was playing for a Coca-Cola select youth side coached by Mike Mutebi with the likes of Ibrahim Juma, Andrew Buteera and Dennis Guma where they played against Proline FC youngsters. He eventually signed for the Ugandan Super League club.

He scored regularly in the Ugandan Super League and was highlighted as an aerial threat during corner-kicks and free-kicks for Proline FC. Bukenya’s game reading and ability to move the ball on the overlap was arguably one of his greatest strengths. Ivan Bukenya played for the Iraqi club Arbil SC in Arbil in the Iraq elite league where he reached the 2012 AFC Cup final against Al Kuwait and helped win the 2011–12 Iraqi Premier League. Bukenya joined South African Premier League outfit Kaizer Chiefs in 2013.

He has represented Uganda at all junior levels and is a current senior national team player. Bukenya was part of the successful Uganda U20 side that finished as winners of the 2010 CECAFA U-20 Championship.
