Uganda Premier League side URA FC will be paying their players ‘fully’ despite the ongoing Covid19 concerns.
As different clubs from the Startimes UPL scratch heads on how to handle players salaries, this won’t be the case for the tax collectors.
URA FC Public Relations Officer Patrick ‘Pato’ Ochieng confirmed the development on Saturday afternoon while appearing on a 87.9 Akoboozi’s sports talk show ‘Omuwagizi’.
“All players and officials at the club will be paid according to what their contracts say,” Patrick confirmed this.
“All our players have received salaries and transport allowances of this month as we talk despite not being at the club now”
He added that the club ”respect everyone’s contract” and ‘we do all what’s in the contract.”
There are growing fears that the league might not be able to return in May as earlier scheduled following the widespread of Coronavirus in the country.
The president recently put a ban on all public gatherings for 32 days, which saw the clubs postpone all engagements including training.
“We will be recieveing news about all players from the doctor by Monday,” Pato added.
“Its not easy to know what the player is doing in this time but I am informed by coaches that they receive information from them on how to keep fit during these times of isolation.”
