The National Beach Soccer League will resume next week.  The league was halted eight months following the covid-19 outbreak. The games will be played at both FUFA Technical center Njeru and Mutoola Resort Beach in Mukono.

Julius Mutebi, UBSA Communications Director revealed that the league will be played in two groups, the Monsoon group, and the Hurricane group, with each group comprising of six teams.

The development, therefore, means that twelve teams will take part in this edition of the league doubling the number of clubs that participated in the previous edition.   

According to the fixtures released, St Lawrence Beach Soccer, Jinja Lions, KIU, Wolves, Kiringente, and Entebbe Sharks will be battling in the Monsoon Group while Buganda Royal, Mutoola BSc, MUBS, Real galacticos, MS Sand Lions, and Grace Church BSc will be locking horns in the Hurricane group.

In the opening games, Entebbe Sharks Bsc will play St. Lawrence University at Mutoola Beach, Buganda Royal will also play Galacticos BSC while Jinja Lions will battle Kiringente BSC, all these in-game week one.  

Previously, the league had only six teams, but the local beach soccer governing body said six more teams were added after submitting and clearing their club and player licensing requirements.
