FUFA relegates Kyetume to Regional League

Kyetume FC has officially been sent packing to the FUFA Regional League, after their appeal to the initial decision got binned by the Local football governing body, FUFA.

After failing to fulfill the FUFA Club licensing requirements, the Mukono-based side was initially relegated two leagues down, from the top-flight.

However, they appealed FUFA’s decision but their pleas have been found ‘unsatisfactory’.

Kyetume had failed to register a single player on the FUFA Connect System, yet the required minimum must be 18 players, hence the tough hand.

“FUFA appreciates your effort to fulfill Club Licensing requirements to participate in the first division 2022/23. Your request has been considered by FUFA Club Licensing Committee,” partly reads a letter from the Federation.

“The Committee noted that your club had no players on the dashboard in the FUFA Connect System as no player was uploaded onto the system by deadline (August 10 2022) as a minimum Club Licensing requirement.”

“The decision of the club licensing Committee is therefore upheld,” stabbed FUFA.

“FUFA wishes to advise that Kyetume FC undertakes to fulfill requirements for the third division Buganda Region season 2022/23

“It is our sincere hope that the club will understand the sporting intentions of this decision.”

The 2022/23 Uganda Premier League is slated to kick off on September 30, but the fixture is until now, not yet out.

Kataka FC will be licking their lips about the prospects of joining the Startimes Uganda Premier League.

It is still not clear on whether the forthcoming league season will have 15 teams or, one, which will most likely be Kataka FC, will be promoted to the top-tier to make 16 teams.
