Get your boots ready!— Uganda Rugby Union (@UgandaRugby) February 1, 2021
We had a Chairmen’s round table discussion this evening and they agreed to return to play on 6th March,2021.
The league will be in a single round robin format with 10 teams participating. https://t.co/3DQpu19hgi
This return date will be 357 days since the last match of rugby was played in the country. The players going to take part thus have just a month to get ready for competitive rugby after almost a year off the turf.
Like Kawowo Sports had earlier reported, the league will not be played in its normal format. Instead, a tournament involving 10 teams will be played in a single round robin format.
URU has however not shared more detail on how this tournament will be played, in terms of participating clubs, fixtures, COVID-19 tests and SOPs.
Meanwhile, the women continue to wait for information on when they will be back in action.
