At the start, Uganda Premier League sponsors StarTimes had confirmed that the will air live only from three venues.
Mandela National Stadium (URA and Villa), StarTimes Stadium (KCCA and Police) and St Mary’s Stadium (Vipers) were the only beneficiaries.
The unpopular move was based on the fact that ‘most of the pitches in the country do not reach to the required standards’, as it was explained by StarTimes Vice President Aldrine Nsubuga recently.
It went on plan until Matchday four when Sanyuka TV (under StarTimes) relayed live the game between Onduparaka and KCCA FC in Arua, the latter won 2-0.
As of now, it has been confirmed that the Pay TV company has backed down and will now air from all venues.
The new revised program will see Match day five game between Express and Tooro United air live on Wednesday, October 31.
Champions Stadium in Mwererwe, Njeru Technical Centre, Arena of Visions, GreenLight Stadium are the other venues which were not earlier included that will benefit in the new program, per the first round.
