FUFA Welcomes Five More Football Clubs to the Big League

The Federation of Uganda Football Federation has added five clubs to the proposed Big League tournament, which is scheduled to begin March 06.

The additional clubs are UTODA FC from Kampala, Gulu United FC, Masaka Municipal FC, Jinja Arsenal FC and Mbugu FC. The addition of the five clubs brings to 20, the number of clubs which are to participate in tournament.

The Federation of Uganda Football Association proposed the Big league as a mechanism to feed the Uganda Super League.

Initially, only 15 clubs had been planned to take part in the big league. Last month, representatives of the relegated football clubs and the football governing body met and disagreed on the proposal to expand the league to twenty teams from the earlier proposed fifteen teams.

The club officials said they feared that increasing the size of the league would mean incurring more expenditure for the cash strapped clubs.
Moses Magogo, the secretary of the FUFA competitions committee did not explain reasons for the change but said the league would kick off on March 6 until April 23 when the first round ends. The second round will run from May 1 to June 20.
He added that each club would pay 250,000 shillings to register for the tournament.
