Covid-19: Fufa confident season will be completed

Potential Party Spoilers. Police play Vipers on the StarTimes Uganda Premier League Crowning Day on May 23. Their enterprising pair of Samson Kigozi (L) and Henry Katongole (R) will be in the mood as they have the potential to hurt the title-hungry Venoms.

Yet, we are dealing with a stubborn virus whose prevalence and rapid spread leave planning only in tentative form, with no guarantees that all will be conducive by then.
But Fufa president Moses Magogo remains confident all should be well.
“At the moment,” Magogo told Daily Monitor, “There is no indication we shall not be able to finish the five rounds of matches remaining but again this is just as of now.”
