Isra, She Mak earn direct promotion as Fufa cancels inaugural Women Super League

SINAN RAJUB SENOGA

Fufa officially announced that the inaugural edition of the Fufa Women Super League has been declared null and void since only one of the three rounds had been played before the pandemic break.

The decision was determined by Article 18 of the Fufa competitions committee which addresses the case of the league not ending due to unavoidable circumstances.

Before it’s cancellation, Kawempe Muslim were leading the seven-team table with 17 points garnered from the seven games they had played.

Kawempe were four points clear of Uganda Martyrs High School and Lady Doves who had played a game less.

The disciplinary action taken on Muteesa University remains unchanged since the University side was demoted after failing to honor league fixtures with no valid reason.

The decisions made also imply that Isra Soccer Academy and Makerere University have been directly promoted to the Fufa Women Super League from the Fufa Women Elite League.

All the teams in the Women Elite League had completed the first round but no club had played 75% of their season fixtures therefore the 1st round table standings are considered final as per FCR Article 18(b).

Both Isra Soccer Academy and Makerere University were leading the Victoria and Elizabeth Group tables at the end of the first round.

Consequently, Asubo Gafford Ladies and Tooro Queens WFC will play a playoff to determine the 3rd team that sportingly qualifies to the FUFA Women Super League season 2020/2021 before the start of the season.

The 2020/21 Fufa Women Super League will have a total of 10 teams taking part unlike in the previous edition.

The 2019/20 Fufa Women’s Cup has been cancelled as well.
