The Division One football league in Jinja has been postponed because of financial constraints.
Salmin Saleh, secretary of the Jinja League Football Association, says the start of the league has been moved to February. He says many participating clubs cannot afford the 110,000-shilling registration fee and they are requesting for FUFA to subsidize this cost.
11 teams are expected to take part in the six-month league. Among them are upcoming regional teams like Wanyange United, Buwenda, Bugembe, Central Tigers, Arsenal Njeru, Bidco, JMC Hippos and Budondo FC.
Fred Kiwanda, chairperson of the Jinja Division One committee, says that if the registration fee is not reduced, the league may fail.
Last season Butagaya Headquarters FC was relegated for failing to honor its fixtures in the Jinja Division One league. Butagaya Headquarters could not afford to travel for all its games.
Kiwanda says the Division has sent a special request for guidance from the FUFA competitions committee.
