BRIEFCASE clubs will have no place in the Big League whose maiden edition kicks off next month.

FUFA’s organising committee has set stringent standards for the competition that is supposed to boost Uganda’s soccer standards.

Computer literacy, a sound bank account, stadia that meet FUFA standards, qualified coaches and doctors are some of the requirements clubs have to fulfill. Fixtures will be released on Sunday and kick-off is expected on March 6.

The new competition is aimed at enhancing the quality of super league entrants. It engages super mini-league cream against clubs demoted from the top flight in a promotional race.

The innovation follows a trend where the bulk of the promoted sides don’t measure up to the standards and fall back immediately.

For starters, clubs will be required to pay a sh250,000 fee for registration.

Besides having a valid e-mail address, clubs will also be required to have an office or physical address, a postal address, fax and fixed telephone line.

To ensure high standards, the clubs also have to employ at least one person as a secretary with a minimum O-level qualification.

Discipline will also be enforced through signing of a declaration form for compliance of the federation’s legal requirements.

Clubs shall also regularly be required to submit their bank statements. The competition committee shall analyse the club’s balance and transactions. Poor performance here will result in termination from the league.
