The Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) has postponed the Regional League that was set to resume after over a year.
The communication was made through a circular dated 2nd June 2021 and signed by FUFA Deputy CEO-Football Decolas Kiiza. 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 Ministry of Health has been reporting massive increase in number of positive COVID-19 cases in the country. This hike prompted the President to address the country with the aim of reminding people to maintain the SOPs put in place by the Ministry of Health.
