The Uganda Premier League’s newbies, Kyetume FC were demoted, and they appealed that decision.
Kyetume FC failed to pass FUFA Club Licensing and were advised to now begin Regional League preparations.
Initially, the Slaughters had not registered even a single player on the FUFA Connect System, even though 18 players are required as a minimum.
When Kyetume was given until Friday, August 12, 2022, to make amends, they failed.
By the deadline of August 18, they only had three players registered with FUFA, who at that point stated that their readiness for the upcoming season is wanting
“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,” noted FUFA Deputy CEO Decolas Kizza.
“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 as a minimum Club Licensing requirement.
“The decision of the club licensing Committee is therefore upheld.
“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 decisions.”
The Uganda Premier League schedule is anticipated to kickoff on September 30.
