Reigning Uganda Premier League champions Express FC are set to be crowned on Tuesday, July 13.
The UPL secretariat confirmed to Kawowo Sports that a scientific crowning ceremony of Express FC will be held at the StarTimes head offices in Kampala.
Gordon Roy Mundeyi, the UPL communications and marketing officer confirmed the programme.
“We shall hand over the medals and trophy to Express Football Club at the head offices of the league main sponsors Star Times in Kampala on Tuesday, 12th July 2021 at 10 am. Only a handful of people have been invited because of the strict rules of gathering due to the Coronavirus pandemic.” Mundeyi confirmed.
The FUFA President Moses Magogo is expected to grace the ceremony.
Express were crowned as champions on June 29 with four games to play due to the current 42-day lockdown.
The FUFA top brass deemed it fit to end the season rather prematurely, just like the case was last season when Vipers won the league trophy for the 2019-2020 season.
Unfortunately, Vipers were never crowned and thus did not receive their winners’ medals and trophy because of unforeseen circumstances.
Express will represent the country at the CAF Champions League whilst the second placed URA took the CAF Confederation Cup.
The title is Express’s 7th and the first since 2012.
