Nakiwala Kiyingi who is the former Express FC chairman and current FUFA 3rd vice president in charge of the league Florence has raised a motion to end the 2020/21 Uganda Premier League season prematurely and crown the Red Eagles champions.

The former minister for youths affairs now wants the Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA )to cancel this season since 75% of the season is completed.

“The Covid-19 pandemic has hit every sector across the world so hard; Uganda has been no 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 raised a day before the president banned sports activities for 42 days in a bid to reduce the spread of the deadly disease.

Express FC currently table leaders with 58 points is likely to be declared champions in case the league is ended despite having four rounds on the season schedule.

The Red Eagles were due to play Wakiso Giants on Sunday at Kabaka Kyabaggu stadium on matchday 27 but the federation has since suspended the weekend fixtures.
