StarTimes FUFA Big League 2021-2022: Match Day 1 Results:

  • Maroons 0-0 Calvary
  • Kitara 3-2 Blacks Power
  • MYDA 3-2 Ndejje University
  • Nyamityobora 0-0 Proline

Former Uganda Premier League champions Maroons started the 2021-2022 FUFA Big League season with a home goal-less draw against Calvary at the lake side Prisons Stadium in Luzira on Friday, 12th November 2021.

The 1968 and 1969 UPL champions were held by the Yumbe based entity who are only making their second season in the second division league.

Maroons got close to breaking the deadlock but former Uganda U-17 captain Emmanuel “Song” Olinga, Fred Amaku and Godwin Kitagenda did not carry their lucky scoring boots on the sunny evening.

Hillary Adima was granted a life-line opportunity with his senior debut when he replaced a rusty Olinga in the closing stanza.
