The new season for the Fufa Big league officially gets underway this Thursday with a number of games set to be played across the country.
Big league is the second tier league in the football pyramid in Uganda and teams will start showing their ambitions of promotion to Uganda Premier League right from onset.
Synergy FC under the tutorship of youthful coach Brian Ssenyondo start the campaign with an away trip to Bundibujjo to take on new comers Bumate FC.
