Proline FC have officially agreed with FUFA’s verdict that declared them as one of three relegated sides as the 2019/20 Uganda Premier League ended prematurely due to the prolonged pandemic break.
The Stanbic Uganda Cup holders released an official statement after the FUFA declared them eligible for the 2020/21 Fufa Big League.
“Dear fans and well wishers, today the 20th May 2029, the FUFA executive decided to stop the Uganda Premier league (UPL) and use the 75% competition rule to award final league positions.”
“As a result, we have been relegated. We are optimistic to ensure survival and we had a big chance to do so but its unusual times the works over and we missed the chance to fight, we know its hard to take but we will go with the FUFA decision.” Read a statement signed by the club’s CEO William Bakkabulindi.
Fufa declared Vipers SC as Uganda Premier League champions while Proline FC, Maroons and Tooro United were relegated.
Proline ended the season with 22 points garnered in 25 games.
For starters, in September 2019 the Fufa Disciplinary Committee found Proline guilty of failing to turn up for their home game against SC Villa and thus were fined and docked six points.
This is the third time in seven seasons that hmm Proline have been relegated from the Uganda Premier league.
