The StarTimes Uganda Premier League will have to find another return date after President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni extended the nationwide lockdown to 21 days due to the Covid19 pandemic.
The league was set to return on May 5 for the final five rounds but that won’t be possible and the league CEO Bernard Bainamani believes Fufa, clubs and UPL will have to discuss way forward
“The FUFA and FSLL statutes respect national Laws and hence at UPL we shall comply with the 21 days extension of the quarantine and other measures as issued by the government,” Bainamani said.
“Certainly, the extension takes us beyond our scheduled return date for UPL which was 5th may 2020. In liaison with Fufa and clubs, we shall discuss the next course of action subject to the relevant provisions of the relevant competition rules.
Table leaders Vipers could be handed the title under the Fufa Competition Rules if the situation doesn’t normalize although the FA already promised they will do all it takes to complete the season.
