Kajjansi side Lweza FC were crowned champions of this year’s FUFA Big League after flooring Sadolin FC 2-0 in a much anticipated tense game held at the KCCA Stadium in Lugogo on Saturday evening.
Former Super league players Saadi Kibirango (Kiira) and Francis Sembatya (Bright Stars) netted the goals for Lweza in a match officiated by Ali Kalyango who later announced his retirement from refereeing after 19 years.
Both Lweza and Sadolin were already guaranteed of top flight football after topping their respective groups (Rwenzori and Elgon) of the regular season.
They were joined by KJT Rwenshama who beat Kirinya-Jinja SS FC 3-2 in a match that decided the third team to join the FUFA Super League next season.
Bob Olouch, Degratious Ochora and Sula Luzige netted the all priceless goals that helped Rwenshama earn promotion to Super League for the first time.
The winner of the Big League title was given a cash prize of 3.6 Million shillings from Airtel as part of the deal they signed with FUFA last year.
The telecom giants also paid for the referees officiating fees for the entire season. Airtel also gave cash prizes to the individual winners of different categories.
FUFA Vice President Darius Mugoye was the Chief Guest while the Airtel’s head of Branding and Communications Alex Wekoye represented the company.
On the final day awards were given to different individuals for the exemplary performance during the 2013/2014 FUFA Big League Season.
