The 33 are a mixture of last year’s Division 1 and Division 2 leagues. This follows Uganda Chess Federation’s [UCF] decision to merge the two divisions into one pool, meaning clubs will not be relegated to the lower division.

While The Royal Knights have joined the league, Maisha Chess Club are yet to communicate their stand. Out of the 30 teams that competed last season, only Maisha hasn’t shown interest.
