Why Fufa will delay release of second-round UPL fixtures

A leading official in league body affirms the reason they will delay releasing fittings for the next leg

Ugandan Premier League (UPL) fittings for the next round won’t be published as scheduled.

Based on UPL CEO Bernard Bainamani, the delay will be brought about by the unconfirmed places by groups that have not worked to prepare their house grounds to satisfy the necessary standards determined by the Federation of Uganda Football Association (Fufa) Licensing Committee.

“Obviously the rate with which we discharge fixtures is dependent on clubs as well as also the Fufa licensing committee. Near the conclusion of this just-concluded across many places have been suspended,” Ainamani is quoted by New Vision.

“Therefore it puts us at a really tough place to draft second-round fittings with these unresolved problems about places.”

He, however, promised if each of the unresolved problems get sorted soon, the league will resume in early January.

“We’re working with all these clubs in addition to the Fufa licensing board to scrutinize these places, affirm them so we could discharge the fittings,” he added.

The first round ended with Vipers SC along with the log, four points before league winners KCCA FC.
