Coronavirus: Ugandan MP Ssewanyana on when UPL could commence

Makindye West Member of Parliament Allan Ssewanyana has urged the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (Fufa) to suspend the Premier League for a longer period.

The UPL was suspended following the measures put in place to halt the spread of the coronavirus and the legislator has asked the federation to postpone the league entirely until when the environment will be conducive for players and fans alike.

“I sympathize with all sportsmen and women who are being affected by this situation,” Ssewanyana said as he was quoted by Kawowo Sports.

“But I think Fufa and sports organizations should start thinking about how to organize next season [2020/21] because I don’t think the league will be allowed to resume not until after September 2020 because of the social distance preventive measure by World Health Organization [WHO] especially in countries like Uganda where we have a few cases of coronavirus.
