FUFA Big League side Katwe United president Allan Ssewanyana claims that the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) should start thinking about next season.
The Makindye West Member of Parliament has urged the federation to forget about completing the remaining games of this season.
It should be noted that the StarTimes Uganda Premier League was suspended as one way of minimizing the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

“I think Fufa and sports organizations should start thinking about how to organize next season,” Allan Ssewanyana was quoted saying.
“I don’t think the league will be allowed to resume not until after September 2020 because of the social distance preventive measure by World Health Organization especially in countries like Uganda where we have a few cases of coronavirus.”
“It is even going to be difficult for clubs to maintain the players plus players themselves maintain fit and resume.”
According to Allan Ssewanyana, since most of the world events have shifted their calendar to 2021, the UPL should also follow do the same thing.
“We have so far witnessed the shifting of global sports events to next year such as Tokyo 2020 Olympics, Euro 2020, Copa America Championship, Asian Champions League matches,” he noted.
The StarTimes Uganda Premier League was suspended with five games to finalise the season.
Vipers are still on the top of the table with 54 points followed by KCCA FC with 50 points from 25 games so far played.
