Moses Waiswa joins Denis Onyango to criticize Fufa’s UPL teams reduction proposal. The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has recently brought a proposal to reduce teams in Uganda’s top flight.
According to the football’s governing body in the country, teams in StarTimes Uganda Premier League should be reduced from 16 to 12 as one way of developing the game in the country.
However, several football stakeholders in the country criticized Fufa’s proposal claiming that this will not develop the game as Fufa claims.

The recent one to criticize the proposal is SuperSport United and Uganda Cranes midfielder Moses Waiswa .
Waiswa claims that he doesn’t concur with the notion that is being fronted by Fufa being it is taking the game nowhere.
According to the former Vipers SC player, the reduction of teams from 16 to 12 will deprive players of an opportunity to feature in the top flight.
“I think the move could improve competitions but then, we have so many talented players that could be denied an opportunity to play in the premier league which isn’t good,” Waiswa said.
The 2018 Fufa MVP award winner has joined Uganda Cranes skipper Denis Onyango who also came out against the proposal.
Onyango said that Fufa should instead increase the number of teams rather than reducing them because Uganda have many talents who need exposure.
However, Uganda Cranes head coach Johnathan McKinstry urged all the players to stay away from this debate claiming that it’s none of their business.
