FUBA Contemplating Tournament-Based Championship

Basketball Governing body in the country, FUBA, is plotting to organising a tournament for clubs after Sports Resumption was given a greenlight.

President Museveni, during his Sunday national address, reopened sports for the first since March 18.

In the long hectic period, FUBA cancelled all basketball activities including the National Basketball League.

The-SportsNation has learnt that the Federation wants to put in place a competition to engage players before league kickoff in around March next year.

The championship will be played in a knock out basis, and it will bring together all teams from the different divisions.

A 3×3 tournament is being discussed as well.

This competition, whose plans are still in early stages, is expected to start in November.

However, the plans face big hurdles to comply with Covid19 guidelines after Museveni stated that players must be tested 72 hours before the match and once every after 14 days.

In addition, Sports in Indoor Arenas has been prohibited while teams have been asked to quarantine their players until the end of the competition.

The National team, Silverbacks, is expected to kickoff Afrobasket qualifiers preparations in Mid October and may be quarantined at Africa Bible University if all goes to plan.
