Express FC have been declared the 2020/21 Uganda Premier League champions, FUFA has announced.
“The FUFA Emergency Executive Committee has on Tuesday 29th June 2021 taken the decision to end the 2020/21 StarTimes Uganda Premier League based on Article 18, Section 1, Sub-section C & D of the FUFA Competition rules,” reads a statement from FUFA.
With the country currently under lockdown for 42 days and the uncertainty of sports activities including football to resume earlier, FUFA has applied the 75 per cent rule which was also used last season.
“Where at least one club has played more than 75 per cent of the league games, the following formula shall be used by TOC (Terms of Conditions) to determine the league positions,” the FUFA rule states.
This means that Express FC who were top of the table on 58 points are declared Champions.
This is their seventh league title and their first since 2011/12 season.
They will represent Uganda in next season’s CAF Champions League.
Also, Kyetume joins MYDA FC and Kitara FC to be relegated to the FUFA Big League.
URA FC who were second on the log, one point behind Express FC will represent Uganda in the CAF Confederation Cup.
