Fufa Punishes Clubs as TV Impasse Rages On

Uganda Premier League (UPL) clubs’ decision to boycott scheduled games on Tuesday has landed Kira Young and URA in trouble with local football governing body Fufa.

Fufa competitions committee secretary Ali Mwebe told journalists today at Fufa House in Mengo that the visiting club failed to honor league fixtures according to the match referees reports and will be deducted three points each from their accumulated results. Kira now sit in relegation zone with 15 points while URA drop to fourth on 27 points Bainamani Bernard Bampaire the UPL CEO tells ChimpSport.

“The matches are declared to be forfeited and awarded 3-0 in favour of Cameroon, recipe Kira and URA are further docked three points each after the Fufa competitions committee considered the two clubs liable for having breached article 25 sub section 7b of Uganda league football rules on absconding from the matches, ” Mwebe said.

Bright Stars-Kira and Soana-URA that were scheduled to take place on Tuesday at 4.30pm did not happen after the clubs in question boycotted them. The duo will be automatically demoted if they miss their next two league engagements.

This followed a meeting by 12 of the 16 clubs at Hotel Africana before the matches on Tuesday. The clubs are protesting Fufa’s move to take charge of the league and subsequent suspension of Fufa Super League (FSL) clubs’ chairman Abbas Kaawaase with Edgar Watson’s office (Chief Executive Officer) now responsible for the day today running of the league.

Also in the mix, broadcast companies Azam and Supersport are fighting for the topflight national football league in court.
