Express and Bright Stars have been banned from staging UPL games at Betway Muteesa II Stadium, Wankulukuku.
The Federation of Uganda Football Association has written to both UPL clubs about the matter, citing the poor state of the playing surface.
Wankulukuku’s surface came under criticism ahead of the Express FC game with Busoga United on Tuesday.
The stadium was clearly in worrying state, with mud visible everywhere after a musical show that was staged at the premise days earlier.
“This is to inform you that the status in which Wankulukuku Stadium does not meet the minimum stadium standards to host the StarTimes UPL matches,” reads a letter seen by this website from FUFA.
“In line with the above, Wankulukuku has been suspended from hosting matches with effect from October 30, 2019.
“It should be noted that deterioration of the grounds below the required standards during the season can lead to revoking its stadium’s clearance to host 1st Division matches.”
Three clubs – SC Villa, URA and Tooro United – who also host games at Namboole have been also been told to look elsewhere for a period of two weeks by the Namboole management.
Bright Stars host Onduparaka on Saturday, November 2 while Express will be at home against Maroons on November 5.
