The fixture were meant to be released yesterday, November 10, ahead of league kickoff on December 3rd 2020.

UPL manager Paul Kabaikaramu blames the delay to club licensing procedure.

“We cannot release the fixture before the Licensing committee confirms the clubs that have fulfilled the requirements for next season,” Kabaikaramu told The-SportsNation.

“Its the licensing committee that confirms the stadiums to use next season.

“In fact, we have our fixture draft ready but we can’t release it before getting greenlight from the FUFA Licensing Committee.”
