USL, FSL fate reverted to clubs

Education and Sports Ministry to hold one last consultative meeting with a “very important group of people” next Tuesday before the long awaited way forward is made public.
You probably have got tired of even reading any further promises regarding government’s proverbial intervention to arrest the stink between Fufa and the Uganda Super League (USL).
But it seems you will have to acquire patience elastic bands for you will have to wait a little more. “You remember I earlier told you we have everything in black and white,” Education and Sports Minister Jessica Alupo exclusively told Sunday Monitor.
“True, but then after seemingly tightening all the loose ends, we realised we had not consulted the most important group of people, a very key group of people.”
Alupo was, however, guarded on disclosing that “very key group of people” saying she did not want to create unnecessary anxiety in the already anxious public. However, Sunday Monitor can authoritatively divulge that the “key group of people” is the clubs.
The double clubs dilemma
But it remains to be seen how the clubs will be invited given that you have one Express, SC Villa, and Simba in USL and another in Fufa Super League (FSL). Alupo herself is due to attend that meeting on Tuesday.
“We didn’t want to take the report to Cabinet and then be referred back to that group of people,” explained Alupo, who is increasingly under pressure to dispose of this nagging pendulum. “We don’t want Ugandans to wait any longer but we want one final solution to this once and for all. Disagreements are expected whenever that meeting happens.
