Buganda Regional: Luweero and Buwambo in playoffs – No relegation, no promotion


Luweero United FC from the Ssezibwa group and Buwambo United FC from Katonga group will play the playoff finals of the Buganda Regional League as table leaders following the decision by the Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) to end the season.

Today, FUFA has decided to end all its competitions that have been on halt close to two months due to the Covid-19 pandemic

FUFA applied article 18 of the FUFA Competitions rules to decide the fate of both the Katongo group and Ssezibwa group

Article 18(1) states that, where the league format due to circumstances of force majeure fails to be completed within the season, the league winner shall be determined as follows:

a) Before every Club has completed its first round fixture the league shall be declared null and void.

b) Where all the Clubs in the league have completed the first round fixture but less than 75% league games have been played, the table standings at the end of the first round shall be considered as the final table standings of the league.

c) Where at least one club has played more than 75% of the league games, the following formula shall be used by TOC to determine the table positions for the respective group:

d) A total number of points earned from the number of games played multiplied by the total number of games supposed to be played divided by the number of games played.

In this case, Buikwe Red Stars FC from Ssezibwa group had played 15 games out of the 20 games which are supposed to be played which is equivalent to 75%

Therefore, Ssezibwa group table leaders Luweero United FC and Katonga group table leaders Buwambo United FC will face off in the regional playoffs before tussling out Kampala Regional League champions in the promotional playoffs.

FUFA has also clarified that no teams will be relegated to the 4th Division League and no teams will be promoted to the Buganda Regional League
