FUFA Big League concludes, Lweza are champions

Lweza FC defeated Sadolin Bugembe FC 2-1 to lift the FUFA Big League title at the KCCA Stadium in Lugogo on Saturday evening. Saadi Kibirango and Francis Sembatya netted the goals for Lweza in a match officiated by Ali Kalyango who later announced his retirement from refereeing.

Both Lweza and Sadolin were already guaranteed of top flight football after topping their respective groups (Rwenzori and Elgon) of the regular season. They were joined by Rwenshama who beat Kirinya/Jinja SS FC 3-2 in a match that decided the third team to join the FUFA Super League next season.

The winner of the Big League title was given a cash prize of 3.6 Million shillings from Airtel as part of the deal they signed with FUFA last year. The telecom giants also paid for the referees officiating fees for the entire season. Airtel also gave cash prizes to the individual winners of different categories.

FUFA Vice President Darius Mugoye was the Chief Guest while the Airtel’s head of Branding and Communications Alex Wekoye represented the company.

On the final day awards were given to different individuals for the exemplary performance during the 2013/2014 FUFA Big League Season.
