The concept of restructuring Ugandan football with the creation of a new second tier league was first mooted in October 2008 by FUFA.
The idea that was single-handedly promoted by the Current President of FUFA Eng. Moses Magogo who was ridiculed, resisted and fought by almost every one.
Although Magogo felt abandoned, he was buoyed by the inaugural clubs that were determined to proceed. Eventually out of persistence, Magogo won one by one convert and eventually the league was passed by the FUFA Executive Committee and started in 2009.
The new National second division league, known as the FUFA Big League (FBL), was to cater for leading sides in the five regions.
Second tier sides at that time competed at the regional level, with many of them failing to cope with advancement whenever they gained promotion to the National Super League.
FUFA Competitions Committee secretary, Moses Magogo, confirmed that qualification to the Super League through the regional mini leagues would be ended and replaced by promotion through the National First Division League.
A major objective of the initiative was to help raise the standard of football outside the Super League
