All teams that will compete in the 2023 National Basketball League season have been tasked to register their players online as FUBA embraces digital technology.
Previously, teams used to register their players under a hard copy file-management system.
And the new FUBA Online E-registration system is set to smoothen the process, save time and minimize errors.
There were complaints from teams who accused FUBA of allowing other teams register past the deadline.
“Those complaints of Late registration will not be heard of because once the system closes, that’s all,” FUBA Head of Marketing, Media and Communications Arnold Katabi told this Website when contacted.
“Human error was also plenty, and I believe this is a good initiative from the Federation and a tool clubs should embrace and welcome.”
The process started with a demonstration by FUBA competitions Manager Edwin Beinomugisha in a virtual meeting held on Monday attended by Club representatives.
Teams will be required to input the players data in the registration portal before submitting.
After Registration, the final approved team rosters shall be printed and the Team members shall fully append their signatures.
The Registration form shall be submitted by teams in both soft copy by email and hard copy at the Secretariat in Lugogo.
The registration will go on until March 8, before the league gets underway on March 10.
All Teams are eligible to register a maximum of 18 players, and as many foreign players, but on a Game day, Teams shall only register and utilize a maximum of only four (4) foreign players.
