No UPDF As FUFA Calls UPL Clubs For Consultative Meeting
FUFA has called for a consultative meeting with teams that will play in the 2020/2021 StarTimes Uganda Premier League.
The consultative meetings will be focused on club licensing programme for the 2020/2021 season and the proposed Competitions reforms, a statement on FUFA website reads.
The meeting is scheduled on Wednesday 10th June 2020 at FUFA Executive House at 10am.
The invited teams for the Wednesday meeting are Vipers SC, KCCA FC, SC Villa, Busoga United, URA FC, BUL FC, Mbarara City FC, Express FC, Wakiso Giants FC, Kyetume FC, Police FC, Bright Stars FC, Onduparaka FC and MYDA FC.
Unlike MYDA FC, newly promoted UPDF FC will not attend the meeting because of the Ndejje petition that awaits a FUFA hearing.
In their petition, Ndejje claims that FUFA wrongly interpreted the rules and they were supposed to be promoted instead of UPDF, after FUFA decided to end the football season due to Covid19.
For the meantime, UPDF FC and Ndejje will both attend the FUFA-Big League meeting that will take place on Friday 12th June 2020.
Each club will be represented by one person who shall be either the club owner or their representative.
The FUFA Big League teams that are invited include; Proline FC, Maroons FC, Tooro United FC, Kiboga Young FC, Kataka FC, Bukedea Town Council FC, Paidha Black Angels FC, Doves All Stars FC, Kitara FC, UPDF FC, Ndejje University FC, Kigezi Home Boys FC, Nyamityobora FC, and Water FC.
FUFA will also meet clubs featuring in the FUFA Wome Super League, Women Elite League, National Beach Soccer League and Fustal League on a date yet to be communicated.
