Uganda has had two leagues running concurrently since August when FUFA and USL agreed to disagree.

The Minister of Education and Sports Hon. Jessica Alupo has ordered that Uganda should have one league by December 31 with sponsors. The statement means that FUFA and Uganda Super League Limited have 18 days to sort their mess for the smooth flow of Uganda’s top tier league.
The instructions are that all clubs in both FUFA Super League (FSL) and Uganda Super League Limited (USLL) are all to send a representative in a final meeting where they will decide and vote on what league they should play in.
Permanent Secretary for the ministry of education of Education and Sport Francis Lubanga will arbitrate and moderate the meeting. Both Supersport and Uganda Breweries Limited were represented in the meeting on Thursday.
Sources from the meeting claim that FUFA vice president Moses Magogo’s desperate attempt to make a last ditch case for association football and argue out FIFA and the general assembly’s position on this matter in August, fell on deaf ears. As Hon. Alupo reportedly shut him down with a parting shot ” You man are so arrogant, who are you? Where do you come from?”
They were all reminded that government not the other way around called the meeting. The gesture by the former UPDF officer means that if all goes well FUFA and USL are destined to work together after close to two years of fighting.
