Due to failure to meet all the requirements for club licensing in the stipulated time, Uganda’s record champions SC Villa have missed on the 2021/22 fixture with the league ready to kickstart on match day 1.
The club’s interim leader Engineer William Nkemba wrote to the Football governing body in Mengo explaining their stand.
FUFA has acknowledged receipt of Engineer Nkemba’s later and subsequently arranged a meeting of the club licensing committee to decide the club’s fate next week.
A statement issued by the Federation’s communication department revealed that ;
“FUFA has received Communication from Mr. William Nkemba responding to some of the missing requirements for Club Licensing for the 2021/2022 season”.
“The Licensing Committee will meet on Tuesday 19th October 2021 to evaluate the provided and available information in accordance with the rules”.
“At the moment the Club Licensing Committee has not cleared SC Villa to play in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League until the Committee has evaluated the matter and advised accordingly” reads a communique from the Federation.
Villa has had numerous challenges in the recent past. They emanate from the failure to conduct club leadership elections.
