The current fixtures indicate that the FUFA Super League will conclude on May 16 a day before the national team’s first qualifier match against a yet to be known opponent. The draw of second round Nations cup qualifiers will be held on 27thApril, 2014 in Cairo, Egypt.

The federation vice president Mujib Kasule flanked by the FUFA competitions Manager Ali Mwebe told the media during the weekly press conference at FUFA headquarters in Mengo that following a request by the technical committee it was resolved to end the league early.

FUFA is expected to launch the 2015 Nations cup campaign on Thursday next week.

The move is expected to create ample time for Cranes’ players and also avoid conflict for players between local sides and FUFA especially since the league will be at the final bend.
