Vipers SC have been announced the 2019/2020 StarTimes Uganda Premier League champions.

In this case, Fufa applied the 75% rules following the FUFA competition rules Article 18 (II) where 83% of the current season has been played.
This is the fourth UPL victory for the Kitende based club, they also won the title in 2009/2010, 2014/2015 and 2017–2018 seasons.
