All is set for this season’s FUFA Big league, a second tier of Uganda Football league system.
This will be the eleventh edition since it was founded in 2009.
The first round league kicks off off on October 17 before ending on November 14, 2019.
Games will be played on Thursday and Sunday for all the nine match-days with kickoff set on 4:00PM.
All eyes will be on newly promoted Katwe United – The Hassan Mubiru coached side and bankrolled by MP Allan Ssewanyana have made marquee signings and their preparations prior to the season, including high profile friendlies with the top tier clubs, makes them top favourites.
The three teams that were relegated from UPL last season – Nyamityobora, Ndejje University and Paidha Black Angels – will be the other sides to look out for.
However, Nyamityobora were ordered to host games in Kabale, not Kakyeka Stadium where they played from last season in the league.
Kiboga Young, Kitara, UPDF and Plascon are the other big contenders for the top seats.
