Kitara Football Club is one of the second division clubs in Uganda that boasts of the biggest fans following.

The Hoima based club will face Kataka from Mbale in one of the two highly billed clashes of the play-offs.

In the other contest, Kiboga Young will take on Ndejje University.

Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) abruptly halted the football league business because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

FUFA employed Article 18 (c) of the FUFA Competition Rules to stop the FUFA Big League.

Two clubs; Malaba Youth Development Association (MYDA) FC and Uganda Peoples Defence Forces (UPDF) were henceforth promoted from the Elgon and Rwenzori groups respectively to the 2020/2021 Uganda Premier League season.

The campaign, if successfully responded to will yield Shs. 100,000,000 shillings, good enough to maneuver the club.
