Uganda Premier League restart date to be changed after extension of lock-down

The StarTimes Uganda Premier League will not return on 5th May 2020 as earlier planned by the UPL secretariat.

This is because President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni extended the nation-wide lock-down by 21 days due to COVID-19 (Corona virus) pandemic.

President Museveni, in his live address to the nation on Tuesday, 14th April 2020 confirmed that the lock-down will continue for another 21 days to allow the tracing of more Coronavirus related patients.

There are five more rounds that remain for the climax of the 2019-2020 StarTimes Uganda Premier League as Vipers leads the 16 team table standings.

The UPL Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Bernard Bainamani, confirmed a course of action will be taken in respect to the President’s directive.

“The FUFA and FSLL statutes respect national Laws and hence at UPL we shall comply with the 21 days extension of the quarantine and other measures as issued by the government,” Bainamani noted.

Kitende based Vipers Sports Club remains top of the standings with 54 points.

KCCA has 50 points. All the 16 clubs have played 25 matches apiece.
