Released unconditionally:

Former Bright Stars forward Joshua Kawadwa who did not play a single game was also let go after sitting out the entire season because of injury and undisclosed sickness that kept him out of serious business for the entire season.

Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) Football Club agreed with nine players to mutually terminate their contracts and they were compensated with one month salary.
