*Proline FC Vs Blacks Power FC, 3pm


The FUFA Big League playoff games will be underway at the FUFA Technical Centre in Njeru and are slated to take place between Sunday 15th to Tuesday 17th August.

The contest returns after a greenlight for resumption of sports activities under strict observation of the Ministry of Health (MoH) SOPs was granted by the president.

This was in the aftermath of a close to two months lockdown on all sports activities along with other different sectors of the economy courtesy of a serge in the Covid-19 cases.

Proline, together with three other clubs will be battling for the remaining promotional place in the forthcoming StarTimes Uganda Premier League season.

No prizes for guessing whether Anthony Bongole’s side will give it everything they have following their agonizing failure to gain an automatic qualification from the Rwenzori division to Tooro United on the last day of the Big League season.

The tie against Blacks Power FC however doesn’t come easy and they will as a requirement have to be more assertive in both intent and possession so as to lead from the front.

Proline negotiated passage to this stage by finishing second in the Rwenzori division with 29 points while Blacks Power finished third with 21 points from the Elgon Group.

In the event that they make it past Blacks Power, Proline will face the winner between Nyamityobora and Gaddafi FC in what promises to be a mouthwatering final which will take place on Tuesday 17th August.

The eventual champions in these playoffs will be the third team to earn promotion to the topflight league following Arua Hill SC and Tooro United who finished top of the Elgon and Rwenzori divisions respectively.

How To Watch- Games are live on Sanyuka TV. It is important to note that the games will be played behind closed doors in adherence to strict COVID-19 SOPs.
