Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) has confirmed granting Sports Club Villa a conditional and provisional club licence.
This temporarily ends a back and forth between both institutions that has seen Villa miss opening two match-days of the Uganda Premier League after they were left out of the fixture.
FUFA earlier said that Villa had not fulfilled club licensing requirements, revealing that their governance structures were still wanting among other missing gaps.
The Club that saw their presidential elections suspended after a court order, have moved a step closer to putting their house in order after their Extra Ordinary Club Congress that was held on Saturday at Serena Hotel in Kigo.
Its this Club Congress that has resolved to hold the Elections of the Club President and the entire Executive Board by Saturday 13th November 2021 as earlier tasked by FUFA.
FUFA has stated that Villa’s licence is subject to the terms in the Club Congress resolutions presented to FUFA.
The statement from FUFA adds: “However, FUFA shall withdraw immediately the provisional licence in the event that the club fails to fulfill the resolutions against which the license has been issued.”
The Federation has tasked UPL Secretariat to include Sports Club Villa in the 2021/22 Uganda Premier League with immediate effect.
