FUFA Walks Back On Decision To Allow Fans

Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) has ordered that all games will be played behind closed doors.

FUFA had earlier given clubs a greenlight to allow about 200 fans inside the stadium.

“This is no longer tenable in the current situation,” FUFA has said in a statement.

The development means that no fans will be allowed in all FUFA organised competitions including the Uganda Premier League, Uganda Cup and FUFA Big League.

This comes after the Federation cancelled the kickoff of the Regional League.

FUFA says that the move has been taken to ensure the health and safety of players, technical staff and all stakeholders.

Fear Of Second Lockdown Takes Toll?

There is a wide view that Government is planning a second lockdown due to a high surge in Covid19.

As of Thursday, there have been 365 Covid deaths and 49759 confirmed cases.

President Museveni is set to address the nation this Weekend and strict measures, if not a lockdown, are going to be effected.

It was reported that Uganda detected an Indian variant of the novel coronavirus that has led to a resurgence of cases since last month.

Last season was called off and Vipers were declared champions with five games to go.

The ongoing 2020/21 season is also set for an anti climax after gathering momentum as the season progressed.

The last Covid19 lockdown left all clubs financially constraint and a waiver from the Federation to allow fans had seen some clubs get a respite.

KCCA became the first club to allow fans back last December before other clubs were given greenlight by the Federation.

FUFA has now advised clubs to strongly encourage limit all other authorised personnel to the bear minimum.
