SUPL Statistical Report 2021-2022


Snapshot: At the end of the season, the table standings showed that there was a big gap between the League Champions, Vipers SC and the other 15 clubs. The point’s difference between Vipers and second placed KCCA FC was 18 points, the biggest since 2014 – 2015.

Apart from Tooro United, which was stuck in the relegation zone for much of the season, with their fate being largely decided by the end of the first round, the other two relegated teams were determined on the second last day of the league. Otherwise, the league was generally competitive.

Attendance: Generally, the number of match attendance out of Kampala and Wakiso was bigger. Fans in places like Arua (Greenlight Stadium and Barifa Stadium) were clearly the more enthusiastic and usually filled compared to those outside Kampala or Wakiso.

On the other hand, fans at Kitende, in Mbarara and Fort Portal were also interested in the Uganda Premier League matches, especially when their teams played the giant sides like KCCA, Vipers, URA, Express and SC Villa. This was because of the high profile the aforementioned teams carried.

In addition, because Jinja had four Clubs based there, BUL FC, Busoga United, SC Villa and Gaddafi FC, the number of fans that watched their games was presumably divided, apart from about three-four matches that filled up.

Pitch Ratings: Apart from the St. Mary’s Stadium in Kitende, FUFA Technical Centre in Njeru and the MTN Omondi stadium in Lugogo that are Artificial turf, football elsewhere was largely on bumpy and uneven surfaces.

Most natural ground pitches are not properly maintained apart from Kabaka Kyabaggu stadium-Wakiso, making them hard, bumpy and unfavorable for playing.

Atmosphere: Apart from three matches that had fans involved in acts of hooliganism, majority of our matches had a conducive atmosphere in terms of Safety and Security. There has been an improvement from the clubs in the area of Safety and Security which in turn has created a conducive environment for fans to watch games.

Television: The creation of a Second production TV by StarTimes saw a big improvement in the number of matches televised live on TV from the usual 70+ to 111 matches in the 2021/22 season for the first time in the League. The focus now is to have more than half the league matches televised to improve on our target market.

Season Awards: End of season awards were re-introduced in 2021 – 2022 season.
