SC Villa Risks Points Deduction

Uganda Premier League record winners SC Villa are set to be docked points for repeated fans hooliganism.

The Jogoos were earlier slapped with a suspended deduction of two points after fans trouble in a league game against BUL on November 23rd, meaning that the punishment would be implemented if a similar crime is repeated.

On Saturday, SC Villa fans threw broken beer bottles at the KCCA FC technical bench during their 1-1 draw at Njeru.

The latest developments are that the FUFA Competitions Disciplinary Panel has asked SC Villa to submit a written response by Wednesday 22nd December 2021 over alleged breach of Article 31 of the FUFA Competitions rules!

If this comes to pass, it will be a huge blow for the Jogoos who have this season found points hard to come by.

SC Villa have collected 10 points and sit just three points above safety. They face Busoga United on Wednesday at Njeru in their last game this year.

In related developments, the FUFA Appeals Committee has granted Police FC Head coach Abdallah Mubiru to receive fresh summons to be heard by the FUFA Ethics and Disciplinary Committee.

Mubiru is alleged to have breached Article 13 of the FUFA Disciplinary Code and Article 31 of the FUFA Competitions Rules during the Onduparaka FC vs Police FC StarTimes Uganda Premier League match on 20th November 2021 in Arua.

He was initially fined Sh2m and handed a suspended two months ban from all football activities.

The former Cranes coach then appealed on the 6th December 2021 basing on the grounds that he was not given a fair hearing, did not make the abusive statements towards the match officials and the was harsh and unfair.

Mubiru has until Tuesday 21.12.2021 by 5pm to have submitted his fresh response to the FUFA secretariat.
