The Uganda Super League Board has resolved to suspend the league for one week with immediate effect but at the same time open a transfer window that will give clubs a chance to sign players before it can resume.
Speaking to Kawowo Sports League chairman Julius Kavuma Kabenge revealed that the league has to continue in harmony the reason they are giving clubs time to recruit new players. “Football has to be played
with every one doing their job,” said Kabenge.
“Clubs through the USL secretariat write to the local Federation, FUFA, to reopen a mini window for seven days for player transfer and registration,” he added. In a meeting chaired by Kabenge himself thirteen clubs were present with the exception of Bunnamwaya SC, Hoima- Busia and Proline FC.
They formed a committee of three; USL Chairman Kavuma Kabenge, KCC’s FC John Mutenda and Victors FC’s Ivan Bagyenda to meet the Uganda Footballers’ Association (UFA) for deliberations.
USL cautioned clubs to fulfill their commitment to the deed of adherence they signed with USL. Ugandan footballers started a sit down strike last Friday demanding things like their image rights, minimum wage, resignation of FUFA president Lawrence Mulindwa, FUFA CEO Edgar Watson and Edgar Watson Bobby Williamson.
