Former Express FC chairman and current FUFA 3rd vice president in charge of the league Florence Nakiwala Kiyingi has moved a motion to end the 2020/21 Uganda Premier League season prematurely and crown the Red Eagles champions.
A letter dated 17th June seen by ChimpReports called for the move.
The former minister for youths affairs now wants the domestic football governing body, FUFA to cancel this season since 75% of the season has been completed.
“The Covid-19 pandemic has hit every sector across the world so hard; Uganda hasn’t been exception especially in the sports sector,” partly read the letter.
“I’d like to move the motion that the league be cancelled at this stage since all clubs have played up to 75% of their games as per the FUFA competitions committee rules, I believe In the spirit of safety this would certainly be the Ideal decision to make,” the letter added
The motion was moved a day before the president banned sports activities for 42 days in a bid to combat the deadly disease.
Express who are currently table leaders with 58 points could be declared champions in case the league is prematurely ended despite having four rounds on the season schedule.
The Red Eagles were due to play Wakiso Giants on Sunday at Kabaka Ktabaggu stadium on matchday 27 but the federation has since suspended the weekend fixtures.
Other title contenders in URA FC (57 points) and Vipers Sports Club (56 points) had Busoga United and Onduparaka on their Saturday menus.
