Mbarara City FC are a much improved side this season, as they currently sit 4th on the 16-team table log with 41 points from 24 matches while the Jogoos are 13th with 23 points from the same number of matches, 3 points above the relegation zone.

The first game to be played at night this season was played on Wednesday, 6th March where Kirinya Jinja SSS edged the Jogoos 2-1.

The change in timing of the fixture is aimed at promoting the league further by encouraging more fans to attend games, especially those that work during daytime. This is expected to happen more next season.

The last time night games in the topflight league were played was in 2012 when Super Sport was still the official broadcaster.

With six games till the end of the season, KCCA still lead the table with 52 points, four ahead of second-placed defending champions Vipers SC.

Ndejje University, Nyamityobora and Paidha Black Angels are the bottom three with 20, 16 and 12 points respectively.
