The University Football League (UFL) organising committee has confirmed a new date and venue for the 2019 final between Uganda Christian University (UCU) and St. Lawrence University.

KCCA FC’s home ground, StarTimes stadium in Lugogo will host this year’s final on Sunday, 10th November.

Uganda Christian University eliminated Bugema University in the semifinals to win 4-2 on penalties after both sides had settled for a 3-3 draw over two legs.

On the other hand, St. Lawrence University also had to eject 2017 champions Uganda Martyrs University with 3-2 on penalties having settled for a 2-2 aggregate over two legs.

The third place play-off match between Bugema University and Uganda Martyrs University (UMU) will be the first to be played at the same venue to determine who finishes third and fourth respectively.

The games were earlier scheduled for Sunday 3rd November at the Mandela National Stadium but were postponed due to the heavy rains that left it in a poor state after the Masaza Cup final.

Namboole stadium management embarked on the refurbishment of the pitch and it has been rested for two weeks for it to be in perfect shape when the Cranes host Malawi in the 2021 Afcon qualifiers on 17th November.
