StarTimes UPL: FUFA finally suspend 2021/22 season


Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has finally confirmed the indefinite suspension of the 2020/21 football season due to the ongoing pandemic.
This comes after days of uncertainty regarding the continuation of the league after the president of Uganda Yoweri Kaguta Museveni suspended sports for the next 42 days as a measure to curb the  Covid-19 pandemic.
And as a result, The StarTimes Uganda Premier League, StarTimes FUFA Big League Playoffs and Stanbic Uganda Cup have all been suspended.

In Circular 1141, the football governing body states that matches will resume at new dates after “obtaining the necessary clearance from Government.”

FUFA wants the league to end but is still contemplating on enforcing a force Majeure clause and award Express FC the league title if they don’t get government clearance – a decision that could directly coincide with the request of the FUFA 3rd Vice president Owek. Nakiwala Kiyingi, who is also a former President of the current leaders, Express FC.

The Big League playoffs were to be played between June 27-29 at FUFA Technical centre in Njeru while the Uganda Cup was at the semifinal with Express, Vipers, BUL and Police awaiting draws.
