The 2021/22 FUFA Women Super League will officially get underway this weekend with four games on card for Matchday one.

8 of the 10 teams will be in action on Sunday with games spread across the country. Only Kampala Queens FC and Kawempe Muslim WFC will not be in action given the number of players on the U20 Women’s National Team. They will however, face off on Wednesday, 9th February.

There is excitement and high anticipation from almost every team given the recruitments made in a bid to bolster their respective squads and all are hoping for the best run in the League.

Kawempe Muslim players celebrate one of their goals against Kampala Queens last season.

Defending Champions Lady Doves FC start their title defence at home to new comers and FUFA Women Elite League Champions, She Maroons and the former are hoping for a perfect start.

Under the stewardship of coach Fred Musiime, The Believers will definitely be one of the teams to contend for this year’s Championship.

However, their opening game is a stern test from The Prison side who despite losing midfielder and last season’s MVP Joan Naggayi are a hard nut to crack.

Joan Naggayi (with the ball) left She Maroons FC. She was named the best player last season.

Coach Alex Sida has largely maintained the squad that he had last season and will hope to make an impact in the top tier division on their first time of asking.

In Soroti, Olila High School WFC welcome UCU Lady Cardinals FC. The two teams were in the same group last season with the latter knicking a hard fought 1-0 win.

Olila High School go into Sunday’s clash without defenders Grace Aluka and Bira Nadunga who are with the Uganda U20 Women’s National Team in Ghana.

Elsewhere, She Corporate FC entertain Uganda Martyrs High School WFC in Nakawa. The Sharks despite losing key players like Vanessa Karungi and Bridget Nabisaalu still look formidable on paper and one of the teams to contend for the title.

Uganda Martyrs have equally lost a host of players including the quartet of Daphine Nyayenga, Harima Kanyago, Gloria Namugerwa and Spencer Nakacwa who joined Lady Doves FC during their CAF Champions League expedition.

However, coach Rogers Nkugwa has always looked to their Junior Team for replacements over the years and he will definitely try to give rookies a chance to show their adeptness.

Rines WFC have bounced back to top flight football with a bang and made some marquee signings including left footed winger Amina Nababi and forward Anita Ainembabazi from She Makerere and Tooro Queens respectively.

The Wakiso based outfit will be hoping for a perfect start at home as they face Tooro Queens.

It should be noted that this season will be played in a block league format with ten teams playing on a home and away basis.
