By James Bakama THE soccer league will this year end two months early as NFLC embarks on a gradual transition to a European model, that will change its season from an August to May format. The 2003 season will start two months later, in November 2002. The league traditionally started in February. A tentative program released by National Football League Committee (NFLC) yesterday has the league second round starting on June 21 and ending in September. NFLC secretary Justus Mugisha said kick-off for the next season has been set for November. Gradual changes are planned to continue over the next three seasons until the local season coincides with the August-May seasons as is the case in Europe, north and South Africa. Mugisha, speaking at the weekly Nile Special press conference, said much as the changes will this year lead to a congested second round, it will ensure our continental representatives are well tuned for the 2002 CAF campaigns and the CECAFA club championships in January. Meanwhile, in a bid to boost the attendance for Saturday’s Uganda versus Sudan African Youth Championship return leg match, students and women will have free entry, according to FUFA assistant secretary Zubair Galiwango. ends
