The Federation of Uganda Football Association president Eng. Moses Magogo claims that the StarTimes Uganda Premier League will be completed despite the lockdown.
All sporting activities were suspended worldwide as one way of combating the Covid-19 pandemic.
Despite proposals from several stakeholders to call the season null and void, Moses Magogo has remained confident that the league will be played to the end.
“At the moment, there is no indication that we shall not be able to finish the five rounds of matches remaining. However, this is just as of now,” Moses Magogo was quoted before adding.
“The Fufa Competitions Rules have provided for this scenario although I don’t think we will need to evoke these provisions,” he added.
With the suspension ending on April 20th, the 2019/2020 StarTimes Uganda Premier League season could still be completed. In addition, within their usual May calendar schedule.
Vipers SC is currently on the top of the table with 54 points followed by champions KCCA FC on 50 points with five games to go.
“It is too early to sound any bells, there is a major disruption already in the international and national football calendar.” Moses Magogo added.
“But the impact and magnitude can only be discussed when we are able to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I don’t think that time is now.”
“We will give a full focus on the matter when the time comes,” he noted.
If the worse comes to the worst, the season may be canceled out and Vipers may be announced the champions since 75% of the games are already played according to Fufa statutes.
