Hoima-based side Kitara Football Club have sealed promotion to the 2020/21 StarTimes Uganda Premier League.
This was after recording a narrow 1-0 victory over Kiboga Young (formerly Mbale Heroes) in the 2020 FUFA Big League playoffs final played at the Technical centre in Njeru.
Forward Brian Muluuli Mayanja scored the only goal in the 55th minute of the well-contested duel.
They join Malaba Youth Development Association (MYDA) FC and army side Uganda Peoples’ Defence Forces (UPDF) FC who qualified directly when FUFA cancelled the season because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The FUFA Big League was started in 2009 as the second tier of Ugandan football and three clubs are promoted each season to the Uganda Premier League.
It consists of two groups; the Elgon and Rwenzori group where the table leaders in each qualify directly. The other four (those finishing second and third in both groups) are engaged in a promotional play off.
UPDF were promoted as the Rwenzori group winners while MYDA were promoted as the Elgon group leaders.
The 2020/21 Uganda Premier League season is anticipated to kick off on November 20th 2020 with fixtures to be released in due course.
Proline FC, Maroons FC and Tooro United FC are the three clubs that were relegated from the 2019/20 Uganda Premier League and will play in the Fufa Big League next season.
