Federation of Uganda Football Association has issued out Sh128M to Uganda Premier League Clubs, this website can confirm.
The amount comes in form of prize money for the 2019/20 season which was ended prematurely with five rounds to go due to Covid19 pandemic.
Vipers, who finished top of the log takes home the lion’s share with Sh60M followed by KCCA FC who has bagged Sh20M.
Tooro United who finished at the root of the 16-team log smiles away with only Sh0.5M.
When contacted, FUFA head of communications Ahmed Hussein and other UPL Club CEOs confirmed the developments to this website.
For the StarTimes package, each of the 16 clubs is expected to receive Sh70M per season after the sponsorship deal agreed in August 2018 for the next 10 years.
The clubs had only received the first three quarters and it remains to be seen whether they will receive the final disbursement.
FUFA set October 17, 2020 as the tentative dates for the start of the 2020/21 Uganda Premier League season.
MYDA FC and UPDF were promoted on sporting merit from the Big league but a recent petition from Ndejje FC has put the latter’s position on hold.
Kitara, Kataka, Kiboga Young and Ndejje were pitted in the playoffs, as it stands, for the only remaining slot.
Proline, Maroons and Tooro United were relegated.
The teams are also hoping to receive some funds as Covid19 relief funds as it was earlier promised by FUFA president Eng Moses Magogo.
