Proline Fc looking to bounce back to UPL

Proline Fc will look to bounce back to the Uganda Premier League after playing out the 2020/2021 season in the FUFA Big League. Defending Uganda Cup champions Proline were relegated alongside Maroons FC, and Tooro United after Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) decided to end the season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Proline Fc who finished second in the Rwenzori group behind Tooro United will play Black Power FC (who finished third in Elgon group) in the playoffs.

Proline Fc won the FUFA Big League to return to the top flight, 2016 Big League top scorer Edrisa Lubega won a key penalty to secure promotion.

Proline were relegated from the Premier League a second time in the 2017-18 season after failing to beat URA. Even with their relegation the 2018–19 season was one of the best in club history, winning the Elgon group of the FUFA Big League on the final match day to clinch promotion and then two weeks later winning the 2018–19 Uganda Cup on penalties as a lower division side. Proline won 5–4 on penalties after a 1–1 stalemate, with Mujuzi Musitafa claiming tournament MVP and joint top scorer. They also beat Wakiso Giants 1–0 in the Big League championship match to win the second division title.

The cup win qualified Proline for the 2019 CECAFA Cup, but they were eliminated in the group stage, only winning one of their three matches.
