Only two clubs, KCCA FC and Proline, are eligible to play in the 2019-20 Uganda Premier League.
The federation, Fufa, confirmed that the two are the only clubs that have fulfilled the minimum requirements of the Club Licensing process.
According to the Fufa Club Licensing Manager Ivan Kintu Bayige, the 14 clubs have either not submitted files for inspection or failed the minimum tests.
The standards in the licensing requirements are presented in the form of criteria under five headings; Sporting (Youth and Coaching), Infrastructure, Legal, Personnel and Administration and Financial.
On infrastructure, the committee has tightened the rules. Previously, the clubs were required to have good pitch covered with green grass all over and an internal perimeter fence.
This season, the clubs are required to have well-furnished dressing rooms, full sanitary facilities and physical separation of fans.
Bayige revealed that of the sixteen, KCCA and Proline are the only ones that have met the requirements.
The two will represent Uganda in the Caf Champions League and Confederations cup. SC Villa, Police, Kyetume, Onduparaka, and Tooro United have submitted only 10 percent. Vipers SC has not submitted any requirement so far.
