KAARO KARUNGI | SPORTS – In a circular No. 1135 dated 2nd June 2021 and signed by FUFA Deputy CEO-Football Decolas Kiiza, FUFA has taken a decision to postpone the Regional leagues that were due to kick off in the near future.
The communication reads; “As you are all aware, according to statistics from the Ministry of Health there is an upsurge in the number of COVID-19 cases as well as deaths in Uganda.”
“Therefore , in order to ensure the Health and Safety of players, Technical staff, and all stakeholders, the FUFA Regional Leagues anticipated for kick off in the near future are hereby postponed until further notice.”
Clubs and all stakeholders are advised to ensure that the COVID-19 vaccination is taken by all

The move comes just few days to start of some leagues including that of Kampala Regional League whose kickoff was pushed to Saturday from last Monday.

The postponement comes as a huge blow for most clubs who have been preparing since last year.

Whether FUFA considers taking the Regional League to one venue like Njeru as it has been the case for Women Leagues, remains to be seen.
