The first two clubs  to qualify to the 2016/17 Azam Uganda Premier league have been identified.

Kirinya-Jinja S.S and Onduparaka were directly promoted to the elite tier (Azam Uganda Premier league) after the climax of the FUFA Big league regular season.

Kirinya-Jinja S.S came from a goal down to beat Wandegeya 3-2 at Kanyanya play ground meanwhile Proline falter at Kasese New Villa in Fort portal to a one all draw.

James ‘Demba’ Otim put Jinja ahead in the opening 10 minutes of the game.

Shafiq Mulangira then netted a brace as Wandegeya led  2-1 by the half time whistle.

Jinja S.S equalized through Otim before right back, Allan Drajuwa got the winning goal.

Meanwhile, Proline succumbed to a late equalizer in Fort Portal to Kasese New Villa as the tie ended one all in a rain laden fixture.

The two results mean that the Jinja S.S tops the Rwenzori Group with 52 points as Proline ends on 51 points.

Kirinya-Jinja S.S thus becomes the fourth club from Jinja to join the premier division (after Jinja Municipal Council Hippos, BUL and Sadolin Paints).

In the Elgon Group, Arua’s Onduparaka walloped Lira’s Sporting United 3-0 to book a berth to the top division league.

Rashid Agau, Muhammed Shaban and Wahabu Gaddaffi’ second half penalty gave them the much deserved victory.

In the other results, Baza Holdings edged the home side, Boma Young 1-0 at the Boma play ground in Hoima Municipality.

The result saved them from relegation to the regional league since they acquired the crucial three points that put them on 22 points, above Lira United (20 points).

Paidha Black Angels won 2-0 over Water football club at the Bar Okoro play ground in Zombo but the result was not good enough to get them above Ndejje University who defeated Artland Katale 2-1 in Luwero.

This means, Ndejje University will join Sporting United at the play-off stage from the Elgon group.

Masavu who won their last day match at the Katabi home 3-2 to Hope Doves will join Proline from the Rwenzori group.

The play –off venue has been already confirmed by the FUFA Competitions department as the KCCA stadium, Lugogo, with the dates as 18th and 21st May 2016.
