Following separate incidents of stadium hooliganism in the 2022/23 Uganda Premier League season, local football governing body, FUFA has promised to deal with the perpetrators strongly.

Last Friday, SC Villa fans went chaotic, pelted stones and injured a Wakiso Giants FC official, as the latter beat the Jogoo 2-1 at the Muteesa II Stadium, Wankulukuku.

On Wednesday this week, Busoga United fans as well were at it, as they contested ‘poor officiation’ in their 1-0 loss to Express FC, prompting a FUFA statement.

“We shall not accept hooliganism in football. FUFA Judicial bodies will continue to handle cases that are in breach of football regulations,” stated the Wednesday statement.

“Investigations will be conducted and adjudication made on all perpetrators involved in acts of hooliganism.”

“We have competent Bodies that will handle these cases as per the Rules and Regulations of the Game. We all have a responsibility to protect football for every one to enjoy the beautiful game.”

The hideous scenes come at a time when various stadia had started witnessing a significant rise in numbers among spectators.

These incidents will however only deal the improvements damages, at a time when the game seeks numbers, sponsors and increased revenue.
