The remaining StarTimes Uganda Premier League (SUPL) fixtures have been suspended until further notice, football authorities have announced.

This follows President Museveni’s address to the nation on Friday 18th June 2021 on the Covid-19 pandemic, where he issued new directives in the fight against the virus.

Sports is one of the activities that have been henceforth suspended for the next 42 days as the country grapples to contain the new strains of the virus.

“Fufa wishes to announce that all Star Times UPL matches scheduled for Saturday 19th June 2021 and Sunday 20th June 2021 have been postponed,” reads in part the statement from the national FA.

“Fufa will give further guidance on the remaining match days in the near future.”

Fufa last season applied the 75 percent rule to award Vipers the title after the pandemic forced the league off with five rounds of matches to play.

Should the same be applied this time, leaders Express will be declared champions for the first time since 2012.

The Red Eagles currently stand on 58 points, with URA and Vipers following on a point fewer, each. All have four games left to play.
