Others are Express FC, Wakiso Giants, Onduparaka FC and Kyetume FC who are not interested in attending.

Clubs revealed reasons to Fufa

They went on to write a letter to UPL signed by Mbarara City Chairman Mwine Mpaka.

Through this letter, the teams have revealed the reasons why they will not be part of the aforementioned meeting.

“The under-listed chairmen have noted with concern the following anomalies that we would like to draw your attention to;” part of the letter reads.

“The invitation to discuss club licensing and league reforms in one meeting is ineffective and will not deliver the desired outcome of the meeting.”

“The notice given is rather too short for us to make the necessary preparations and consultations.”

“We had earlier planned for a similar meeting scheduled for 18th June 2020 as communicated by Bernard Bainamani on the UPL forum.”

“Owing to the above, therefore, we have unanimously agreed not to attend the scheduled Fufa meeting due on June 10th, 2020.”

“The following suggestions are also proposed for better planning going forward.”

“Organize a separate meeting for CEOs to discuss club licensing; organize a separate meeting for club chairmen to discuss strategic issues affecting the future of the league,” the letter further reads.
