Uganda Premier League secretariat has finally released the full fixture for the 2022/23 season.

Notably, there is no newly promoted side Kyetume FC who failed to full fill licensing requirements.

The release comes in the wake of a directive from FUFA who told UPL secretariat to prepare for a 15-team season.

The Slaughters failed to upload required number of players on the Connect system dashboard by deadline, a requirement to earn a license for the forthcoming season.

The season, as earlier announced, will kickoff on Friday, September 30 as Vipers start their title defence against Bright Stars at Kitende.

The first round will end on December 12 after 15 Match-days. The second round starts on February 9 before the season climax on May 27 2023.

What does the future hold for Kyetume?

Per the fixture, Kyetume were likely to start with Arua Hill on Match-day one, as the Kongolos have no opponent on the said Match-day.

With about three weeks to start of the season, something may happen and there is some faint hopes that Kyetume may be reinstated.

We have been in this situation before, and it is not long ago, just last season.

SC Villa were at the wrong end of the licensing committee as the Jogoos had not sorted their Leadership issues.

And after around Match-day three, SC Villa were brought in back in what later turned out to be a difficult season for the Jogoos.

It might be a different story for Kyetume, who might not get the favour from top bosses at Mengo.

Only the FUFA Executive meeting can reverse the decision of the Appeals Committee, and that meeting was held this week, but it’s resolutions are yet to be released.

Else, Kyetume will play in the Buganda Regional League next season.
