Warriors Pull Out Of National Basketball League

Warriors have pulled out of the coming National Basketball League, The-SportsNation has exclusively learnt.

The decision comes just days away from league tip-off.

They were scheduled to open their shortened season against UCU Canons on April 18, 2021 in Mukono.

The source at the club claims that they have not found it right to risk their players during this Covid19 period and will wait for the vaccine.

However, this website has learnt that the club, managed by former FUBA President Ambrose Tashobya, is financially constrained.

Reports have it that players are demanding arrears of over seven months, and some of the senior players are on their way out.

FUBA Technical Director Nicholas Natuhereza says that they have not received any official letter from Warriors but “I have rumours about it., unfortunately we don’t deal with rumours so we will wait for an official letter from them.”

Warriors become the first NBL Men team to pull out. UMU Ravens and A1 Challenge will miss out in the NBL Women division.

The sleeping giants are two time NBL champions having won the title in 2012 and 2009.
