The Federation of Ugandan Football Associations has come up with a very strong statement on recent acts of violence in Ugandan football.

Vandalism resulting from violence on Saturday marred the Sports Club Villa and Sports Club Vipers' match in the Azam Uganda Premier League.

However, FUFA president Moses Magogo has warned the football loving supporters that his association will take the necessary steps to punish the perpetrators.


“We have noticed with concern unacceptable incidents that will derail all the efforts of rebuilding the league,” said Magogo.

“In the latest communication from FIFA about our Statutes, it has been clearly stated that the functions of Anti-Doping, Club Licensing, Refereeing and Disciplinary Measures are an exclusive obligation of the Federation.

“We will therefore undertake our roles without fear or favour.

“Actions of Violence and Hooliganism, Inciting Violence by Officials and Players, Poor Performance of the Referees and Doping cases have already been observed in the League.

“The Rules are very clear on all these cases and we will implement the rules to the dot.”
