FUFA Big League Playoffs

M1: Gaddafi Vs Nyamityobora
M2: Proline Vs Blacks Power

FUFA Big League Final
3rd place: Winner M1 Vs Winner M2
Final: Arua Hill Vs Tooro United


Four Clubs will be battling for the remaining promotional place in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League for the coming 2021/22 season.

The playoffs puzzle was completed after the curtains for the regular season came down on Sunday.

Arua Hill (Elgon group) and Tooro United (Rwenzori) topped their respective groups to officially earn UPL promotion on sporting merit.

The four teams, top two from each group, have earned their place at the playoffs with only one single UPL ticket at stake.

Rwenzori group runners up Proline with 29 points will face Blacks Power who finished third in Elgon with 22 points.

Money bags Gaddafi FC who came second in Elgon will tussle it out with Western Regional side Nyamityobora who were third in Rwenzori.

The two winners of each tie will face off in what promises to be a mouthwatering clash.

Tooro United and Arua Hill will be playing for a title to determine who takes the bragging right as the season’s champion.

FUFA is yet to confirm the venue and dates for the playoffs and final but Lugogo or Njeru look viable options.
