The 2019 University Football League (UFL) final that was scheduled for Sunday 3rd November at the Mandela National Stadium have been postponed.
This follows the resting of the Namboole Stadium pitch for refurbishment following the recent heavy rains that left it in a poor state during the Masaza Cup final over the weekend.
Namboole stadium management has embarked on the refurbishment of the pitch and it will be rested for two weeks for it to be in perfect shape when the Cranes host Malawi in the 2021 Afcon qualifiers on 17th November.
The third place play-off match of the UFL was also slated for the same date with the final but has also been postponed.
The final is between Uganda Christian University (UCU) and St. Lawrence University while the third place play off is between Bugema University and Uganda Martyrs University.
The UFL Organising Committee is in the process of securing an alternative venue.
Among the options being considered are Wankulukuku stadium, KCCA FC Stadium, St. Mary’s Stadium Kitende, FUFA Technicla Centre Njeru, Bugembe Stadium, Luzira Prsion grouns and Wakissha stadium.
