Express FC has been slapped with suspended sanctions by FUFA over hooliganism tendencies by their fans during a 3-2 loss to Wakiso Giants FC at Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium, on November 28th.

It is alleged that Mukwano Gwabangi fans threw objects on the pitch during the game in protestation of the what they felt was biased officiation.

The Red Eagles can count themselves lucky for avoiding immediate punishments from the disciplinary panel, but will face the wrath of the unforgiving hand should they repeat the hideous actions.

“A suspended two points and two goals deduction which shall be automatically deducted from those that the club shall have accumulated should the actions of hooliganism occur again,” the FUFA statement partly stated on Wednesday.

“A suspended deduction of one (1) point and one (1) goal for 30 days within which Express is to avail to the CDP the individual culprits and all relevant details that orchestrated the hooliganism for onward transmission to the match integrity committee for necessary action.”

“Sanction no.2 above shall be retracted automatically should the club avail the culprits within the above stipulated time frame. Failure for the club to avail the said individual culprits, one (1) point and one (1) goal shall automatically be deducted.”

It should however be noted that the seven-time Uganda Premier League champions had identified and suspended one of their fans, Napoleon Ninsiima.

FUFA has been strict with hooliganism this season, with a number of clubs including; SC Villa, Busoga United, Blacks Power FC already feeling the pinch.
