Busoga United Lose Express Game By Forfeiture, Deducted Points

FUFA Competitions Disciplinary panel has given Express a 3-0 win over Busoga United after the league game was initially abandoned in added time.

On November 16 at Kakindu, Allan Kayiwa scored from freekick to hand Express a late lead against hosts Busoga United before ugly scenes ensued.

The Busoga United fans pelted stones onto the field of play, the match was halted and tear gas was needed to disperse crowds.

The referee abandoned the match.

The Disciplinary panel has ruled that Busoga United lose the game by forfeiture, 3-0 and Busoga United have also been deducted three more points for indiscipline.

“Busoga United has lost UPL Match No. 52 that was played on Wednesday 16.11.2022 at Kakindu Stadium by forfeiture,” reads a statement from FUFA in part.

“Busoga United FC has also been handed an immediate three (3) points and three (3) goals deduction from those already accumulated by the club this season.”

This leaves Busoga United with three points while the Red Eagles move to 14 points.

Busoga United have been further warned, and if the events are repeated, they will host five games away from home behind closed doors.

Further investigations on Club Chairperson Diana Nyago are ongoing after she reportedly denied Express FC access to the dressing room.

Nyago is said to have exchanged abusive words with the Express coaches and also denied Express kits-man access to the field of play at about eight minutes to
warm up time.

  1. It is well according to incidents that occured in that game but I also look at the factor the referees, that referee is the on who officiated a game between busoga united against ura and when you look at ura first goal, it was totally not needful to give out that penalty. Because a player just slid and fell. So if there is a way fifa can continue training there referees please do it. Ugandan referees are so poor.

  2. I make a correction, it was actually a free kick not a penalty. And this express match he always have out silly free kicks to express, now here in busoga think that referees from central will always want to see eastern teams beaten. Because of poor officiation from the referees. If there is a way referees to punish referees please make research and punish them for poor officiation.
