Women super league is set to return to resume next month after over eight
months of inactivity.
The resumption follows a consultative meeting held at FUFA Headquarters in
Mengo between clubs’ representatives, FUFA 3rd Vice President, Nakiwala
Kiyingi, and FUFA Competitions Director, Aisha Nalule.
A draft fixture of the League was also released with the 2022/23 season.
However, FUFA made it clear that the fixture is subjected to changes given the
fact that some clubs are yet to fulfill the Club Licensing guidelines.
In the draft fixtures, ten teams will be battling out in this years’ edition.
They include UCU Lady Cardinals, Lady Doves, Uganda Martyrs H/S, She Maroons,
She Corporate FC, Rines SS WFC, OLILA HS WFC, FC Tooro Queens, Kawempe Muslim Ladies,
and Kampala Queens .
Kiyingi confirmed that all the 10 ten teams that will take part in the league
have cleared the necessary requirements, including club licensing among others.
//Cue in: we are proudly …
Cue out: … with the women”//
In the opening fixtures, Rines SS WFC will host FC Tooro Queens on 5th February
2022 at Kabaka Kyabaggu stadium. Other fixtures include She-Corporates against
Uganda Martyrs H/S Lubaga, Lady Doves against She Maroons among others.
FC are the defending champions of the FUFA Women super league after defeating
UCU Lady Cardinals 2-1.
Meanwhile, the tentative kickoff date for the FUFA Women Elite League was set for
14th February 2022. Kiyingi also urged club owners to clear the necessary
requirement before their league kicks off on 12th February 2021.
Kiyingi also revealed that the Federation has so far registered over 5,000
women football players in a bid to empower women’s football in the country.
