The new Ulinzi Sports Complex has led to an increase in Ulinzi Stars fans.

Ulinzi Stars head coach Bernard Mwalala has expressed his appreciation to the club fans for their continued support.

The Soldiers are in position seven on the FKF Premier League log with 24 points from 15 matches.

In a statement, Mwalala thanked Ulinzi Stars fans for their unwavering support and enthusiasm for the club this season.

"Your constant encouragement and passion for the game have been a source of motivation and inspiration for us, both on and off the field," the statement reads in part.

"Your energy and spirit at every game are contagious and make each match an unforgettable experience.

"Your dedication to this team is truly awe-inspiring, and we are so grateful to have you as part of our journey.

"Thank you for being there for us through the highs and lows and helping us strive towards our goals.

"We could not have made it this far without you, and we are honored to have you as our fans. We look forward to continuing to grow and succeed together," said the former Kakamega Homeboyz head coach.

Mwalala was appointed the Ulinzi Stars head coach in September 2022 after parting ways with FKF Premier League side Kakamega Homeboyz.

The 38-year-old former Kenya international replaced experienced coach Benjamin Nyangweso, who was shown the door in July last year.

Vincent Otieno was serving as Ulinzi Stars' stand-in coach following Nyangweso's dismissal and is the current assistant coach together with Khamisi Abdallah Mohamed.

Mwalala has previously been in charge of Bandari and is remembered for guiding the Dockers to the CAF Confederation Cup play-off stage in 2019, where Guinea's Horoya AC eliminated them.

Bandari had booked the knockout date against the Guinea Conakry outfit after beating US Ben Guerdane of Tunisia on a 3-2 aggregate win.
