Uganda Super reserve League Halted

Uganda Super reserve  League Halted

The Federation Uganda Football Association (FUFA) yesterday temporarily halted Uganda Super League’s (USL) Reserve League.


Addressing a news conference at Serena yesterday, Fufa vice president representing the USL Mujib Kasule said the necessary basic requirements were not in place yet to allow the league start.


"Most of the Super League clubs do not have the reserve teams and USL’s argument that the reserve league will use the top flight’s rules is practically impossible," said Kasule. "The cost implications of clubs transporting two sides for home and away matches were also not considered. The reserve league is a very good idea but we don’t want to put the baby out and after two weeks it dies."


Kasule added: "So we have arranged a meeting with all Super League clubs on Friday (tomorrow) at Fufa House to see the best way forward. All pending issues such as Hoima’s expulsion, games that were earlier played (when Fufa deemed them illegal) etc, will be sorted."


The USL had already released fixtures for the Reserve League and six games were due to take place yesterday. USL CEO Jimmy Ssegawa wrote to Fufa counterpart Edgar Watson to confirm the games’ call-off.

Meanwhile, the national women team have renamed from She Cranes to the Crested Cranes ahead of their friendly with Egypt on December 14. Hoima have also appealed to Fufa appeals committee against the Shs30m USL slapped on them to be readmitted in the league.
