Federation of Uganda Uganda Football Association has ordered the four Big League clubs to pay Sh5.5m each ahead of the coming playoffs.
FUFA says that the amount, payable to her account, will cater for the Covid19 tests and meals for the period the clubs will be residing at Njeru.
As stated above, the playoffs will be played at FUFA Technical Centre in Njeru due June 27-29.
From a document seen by this website, addressing the four clubs – Proline, Gaddafi, Nyamityobora and Blacks Power – from FUFA competitions director Hajjat Aisha Nalule, the clubs have been asked to submit a contingent of 25 people consisting of not more than 20 players and five officials.
The Big League final between Arua Hill and Tooro United has been postponed until further notice, FUFA has said.
Is FUFA milking Cows Without Feeding them?
The fee of Sh5.5m is a huge figure for the four clubs who have endured the short season that has been played with less gate collection due to restrictions on fans entry to the venues.
This is supposed to be the time when the Federation is supposed to lift the financial burden off clubs.
This comes at a wrong time when the clubs have not yet received the sponsorship money.
Rwenzori group runners up Proline (29 points) will face Blacks Power who finished third in Elgon with 22 points. Money bags Gaddafi FC who came second in Elgon will tussle it out with Western Regional side Nyamityobora who were third in Rwenzori.
The two winners of each tie will face off in the final to determine which other team joins Arua Hill and Tooro United as the three promoted teams to Uganda Premier League next season.
