Proline FC have been docked six points and six goals by the FUFA Competitions Disciplinary Panel after forfeiting their match day three fixture against SC Villa Jogoo at StarTimes stadium, Lugogo.
In a letter from the disciplinary panel, the newly promoted league side has been found guilty of violating FUFA Competition rules and it orders that the Proline loses the match against SC Villa by forfeiture.
The panel further ruled that; “1. SC Villa get three points and three goals.
“2. Proline, being the home team, will be docked a further SIX points and six goals from the ones they will accumulate.
“3. Proline will pay a fine of Shs5 million for bringing the game of football into disrepute.
“4. Proline have an option of appealing to the Fufa Appeals committee.”
The fine of five million shillings has been ordered to be paid by September 18, 2019.
Proline had earlier written to FUFA confirming that they were not honouring the fixture because two of their players in Mustafa Mujuzi and Bright Anukani were on National team duty and that according to FIFA rules on International break, all domestic leagues must take a break.
However the Fufa rules say the minimum is three players and other league games were played that day.
For now, SC Villa has been given three points and three goals and move to seven points.
Proline becomes the second club to be docked points this season after Police didn’t show up for their game against Onduparaka on match day one while they were out of the country for military games without notifying the Uganda Premier League committee.
Proline are currently preparing for thir CAF Confederation second Round Preliminary game first leg against AS Kigali FC in Rwanda on Saturday September 14.
