In bid to fight hooliganism in Ugandan football, FUFA have asked Uganda Premier League side SC Villa Jogoo to produce the fans who threw objects towards the players on the field in their game.

The incident led to the halting of the game in the 75th minute.

The unruly SC Villa fans threw the objects on the pitch because they did not agree with some of the decisions that were made by the referee while officiating which brought the game to a standstill for two minutes.
