The very last game of the 2016/17 FUFA Big League regular season will take center stage at the Kyambogo West End playground between Kyambogo and Kira United on Sunday.

The match was originally scheduled to take place on Friday but was not played after match referees realized there was no enough security to warrant kick off.

The FUFA Competitions committee thus adjusted the game on Sunday in a communication to the media and the two concerned parties.

Kira United requires  maximum points in the fixture to earn a playoff slot where they will play Synergy.

Although they are already relegated, Kyambogo Football Club is one entity ready to cause any upset at their own grave yard.

Busia Fisheries 2-1 home victory over Maroons on Friday meant that the Eastern Uganda outfit is currently third in the Elgon Group with 37 points, one better of Kira United.

Incidentally, both Kyambogo and Kira United have the same goals scored and conceded with a similar goal difference (13).

So, to be sure of qualification, Kira United needs maximum points against a stubborn side that has blown hot and cold this term.

Promotional playoffs:

The promotional playoffs kick off this Thursday at the Mutesa II Wankulukuku stadium.

Ndejje University will take on Mbarara City in the earlier game of the day at 2:00 p.m

The second game shall witness Synergy take to the field against Kira United or Busia Fisheries (depending on Sunday’s result).

The promotional final shall thus be held on Sunday, 7th May 2017 at 1:00 p.m before the main match between Maroons and Masavu at 4:00 p.m to decide the overall winner of the 2016/17 FUFA Big League.


From the Elgon group, Moroto United, Kyambogo and Doves All Stars have been all relegated and will play in their respective Regional Leagues.

Boma Young, Entebbe, Hope Doves and Baza Holdings were relegated under the Rwenzori Group.
