By the time the 2019/20 FUFA Big League season was abruptly halted by Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) because of the Coronavirus pandemic, UPDF were top of the Rwenzori group with 23 points off 11 matches.

Thus, they were declared winners of the Rwenzori group and sportingly earned a slot to play in the Uganda Premier League.

However, Ndejje University Football Club protested FUFA’s decisions and UPDF has never been confirmed thus far.
