Originally to start early March, then postponed to July 6 but still not started due to a conflict between the federation and 8 of the clubs (including Vital'O and most of the Bujumbura clubs) on alleged malversations with money donated by FIFA.

Some sort of competition may have been carried out at the end of the year. Apparently Muzinga won the league title; they represented Burundi at the 2003 CECAFA Club Cup and the African Champions Cup 2003. They were also referred to as holders in the 2004 championship.
