What are the chances of football resuming any time soon in Uganda?


The Coronavirus pandemic has affected the entire world, changing the way we live and play. By this time, we have probably already understood that there is a growing uncertainty of when sport will return.

Most football leagues and sport altogether has stopped over the past months, and there is no clarity regarding when the games will return for most parts of the world.

The scenario changes depending on which part of the world you might be in. However, here’s a quick briefing to learn when – and how – the Uganda Premier league might return to action.

Following President Museveni’s extension of the lockdown to more 21-days, many football pundits in the country have expressed their concerns on whether the Uganda Premier league will return or not.

Initially, FUFA expected the league to resume as earlier as 5th May 2020 but following the extension of the lockdown which is expected to end on 5th may 2020 the federation will have to contrive and decide the future of the 2019-2020 Uganda Premier League season.

While addressing the country on the matter, President Museveni hinted that they may lift or maintain the lockdown during these 21 days depending on the situation surrounding the curb of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Therefore we could still see football activities resuming across the country earlier in May or Mid-May.
