FUFA has cancelled the 2019/20 season of the Stanbic Bank Uganda Cup declaring it null and void with no winner due to the continued COVID-19 restrictions on sports.
Despite the Cup cancellation, Stanbic Bank will honour its commitment by paying prize monies to clubs that had progressed to the Round of 16 and the Quarter Finals.
According to FUFA President Eng. Moses Magogo, the Federation had hoped to complete the season but due to the continued restrictions on sports, the Federation reluctantly decided to declare the 2019/20 season of the Stanbic Bank Uganda Cup null and void with no winner.
Stanbic Bank’s Head of Marketing & Communications Daniel Ogong said it was unfortunate that the season had to be cancelled as it promised to be the most exciting one yet.

1. Proline FC
