The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has punished both Busoga United and Kyetume for breach of the Covid-19 regulations.
Both Busoga United and Kyetume will host their next home games behind closed doors.
Authorities accuse the management of both clubs of allowing spectators into the stadium for their home games; Kyetume against MYDA on March 18, 2021 at Fufa Technical Centre, Njeru while Busoga United also did same at their home game with Kitara without written authorization from FUFA on the same day.
“Most of the fans were seen not wearing face masks,” reads in part circulars from the Competitions Disciplinary Panel.
Article 10 of the FUFA COVID-19 Regulations establishes that, “All matches shall be played without spectators,” and that “fans shall only be allowed with written permission from FUFA.”
Article 11 of the FUFA COVID-19 Regulations also emphasizes wearing of face masks at all times while in the stadium
With the above said to have been breached, the CDP noted that Busoga United and Kyetume had been previously cautioned, and that it was time now for a sterner decision.
The “CDP hereby SANCTIONS KYETUME FC and BUSOGA UNITED for violation of the FUFA COVID-19 regulations with one match under closed stadium for the next home game under the Uganda Premier League.
“Should you fail to heed to the sanction above, the CDP shall be constrained to take stringent disciplinary measures against you.”
That implies that Busoga United’s game against Onduparaka today will have no fans as well as Kyetume’s tie against Police on Saturday April at Njeru.
