The Federation of Uganda Basketball Association (FUBA) has cancelled the Inaugural FUBA Cup.
This was confirmed by the federation in a press release circulated by the media department.
“We would like to inform all Clubs and other stakeholders that the inaugural FUBA CUP 2020 has been cancelled due to unavoidable circumstances beyond the Organizers control.”
“We regret the inconveniences caused by this decision especially to the Clubs that had confirmed participation,” the notice read.
The four day tournament was scheduled for this month from 14th to 22nd November.
It was slated to take place at the Kampala International University (KIU) basketball court in Kansanga.
Teams were supposed to confirm participation not later than November 1st with a participation fee of Shs 500,000.
The cancellation comes as a big blow to the players who were already in preparations. Basketball has been halted since March due to the coronavirus and the only hope to return to action switches to next year.
