A previous Uganda Premier League press conference

FUFA Consultative meetings with clubs:

  • 10th June 2020: Top flight clubs (UPL)
  • 12th June 2020: Second division clubs (FUFA Big League)

*The venue for both meetings is FUFA Executive House, Mengo – Kampala

After a rather abrupt ending of the 2019/2020 season because of the COVID-19 pandemic, there are early preparations for the upcoming times in Uganda’s football.

The 2020/2021 football season preparation is currently underway with behind the scenes moves.

It is on this platform therefore that Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has called for consultative meetings with clubs featuring in the top two men’s football divisions.

The StarTimes Uganda Premier League and StarTimes FUFA Big League are the first and second divisions respectively.

It is anticipated that these meetings will be tranquil and at some stage expected to reach boiling points with deliberations set to help the running of the game smoothly in the future.

Matters arising finances (token from main sponsors – Star Times), the expected COVID-19 financial grant from CAF and FIFA, governance as well as the shape of these leagues, among other matters arising are expected to come from the bold club representatives.

These consultative meetings will be focused on club licensing programme for the 2020/2021 season and the proposed competitions reforms.
