UPL To Climax Earlier As Secretariat Move To Adjust Fixture

The curtains for the ongoing 2020/21 Uganda Premier League will come down a bit earlier than initially planned.

Per the available fixture, the league was to take a break from May 23rd and return on June 15 before ending on June 30.

That break in between was created to give room for Uganda Cranes prepare and take part in the African section of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

However, CAF has postponed the start of the Qualifiers once again, which have since been rescheduled to kickoff for the October window.

UPL has stated that it will rearrange and bring matchday 27, 28, 29 and 30 closer so that clubs are not left redundant during that spell.

The UPL secretariat will draft a final fixture with new adjustments this week, League manager Paul Kabaikaramu has confirmed.

With games coming thick and fast, Clubs have complained about a tight schedule and it remains to be seen if clubs will continue to readjust.

The quality of the grounds, during the rainy season, has continued to deteriorate as well.
