Vipers SC were declared 2019/2020 Startimes Uganda Premier League (SUPL) champions after Fufa, Uganda’s football governing body decided to end the season.
The decision was catalysed by continued uncertainty due to the coronavirus pandemic.
It is the fourth title for Vipers SC.
Vipers SC were on top of the league table with 54 points, 4 points ahead of second placed KCCA with five matches left to play.
Tooro United, Proline (all on 22 points) And Maroons (24) have been relegated to 2nd division.
Fufa president Moses Magogo announced the decision on Wednesday at Mengo: ‘’The Fufa executive has decided to apply the 75% rule and declared Vipers the Uganda Premier League champions.
‘’Maroons, Proline and Tooro United are (also) eligible to apply for club licensing for 2020/2021 Fufa Big League Club License.’’
As it stands, Vipers will represent Uganda in next season’s Caf Champions League. Fufa will continue to monitor the situation in the country and see if Uganda Cup can be completed to see who will represent the country in the Caf Confederation Cup.
Should the Cup not be decided, KCCA, who are placed 2nd in the league, will represent the country.
