It’s on the above note that the Jinja-based club has filed a petition against Miguel Da Costa coached side.

The copy of the letter received by this website reveals how BUL cite Vipers’ failure to comform with FUFA competitions rule, Article 26.

“On Wednesday, April 11 2018, the above mentioned game (Match No 185. BUL football club vs Vipers Sports Club), during the inspection of licences, it was found out that the visitors did not have all the players’ licenses,” reads the letter in part.

The rule has it that there shall always be an inspection of the licences by the captains of each club supervised by the refereee and match commissioner if appointed before the kickoff of the matches, also, all players licences must be presented by the club officials.

Article 26 (4) reads
“In an event that all players licences are missing such cases must be reported to the nearest police station four hours before kickoff.”


The visitors didnot comply with the above.

It is further noted that the club that defaults, will lose the match by forfeiture.

Ahead of their league highly anticipated clash with SC Villa in Masaka on Tuesday, SC Vipers are currently third with 43 points from 22 games.
