BUL football club has filed a petition against Vipers Sports Club over the negligence to produce player licenses prior to their previous league encounter that ended 0-0 at Kakindu on Wednesday 11th April.
The point of contention is that Vipers failed to produce player licenses which is a requirement for kick off and the game was played under protest.
In a letter filed by the Jinja outfit, Vipers is accused of not abiding to Article 26 as per FUFA Competitions rules.
“On Wednesday 11th April 2018, the above mentioned game (Match No 185. BUL football club vs Vipers Sports Club), during the inspection of licences, it was found out that the visitors (Vipers SC) didn’t have all the players’ licenses.
However, the CEO Vipers SC (Lwanga Peter) promised to download a soft copy of the licenses before the commencement of the the second half which he did not do.
The game was played and the photos of the Vipers SC players taken together with the center referee and the captain of BUL football club.
“I refer to the FUFA Competitions rules, Article 26 inspection of licenses.”
