Match day one fixtures Friday 30thSeptember 2022

As the first day of the official opening of the season, All roads lead to St. Mary’s stadium, Kitende where champions Vipers get their title defense underway against Soltilo Bright Stars. The two sides will be desperate to start the campaign on a winning note and send a strong message to the rest of the league. Marvin Youngman who crossed the divide from being a star to a venom will be one of the key man to look out for in a fixture the hosts have dominated.
