Tooro United has lost their game against Onduparaka FC by forfeiture, FUFA Disciplinary panel has ruled.
The said match was supposed to be played on Tuesday on January 7 at St Paul Seminary in Fort Portal but it was called off after Tooro players had no licenses.
The development comes after the club coach Eric Ndifuna resigned from his role on Thursday.
The letter, seen by this website from FUFA competitions disciplinary chairman Deo Mutabazi, reads in part:
The CDP finds that:
“Tooro United FC did not present player licenses for inspection of the match against Onduparaka FC and as such, all the Tooro United players were ineligible to play the said match in accordance with article 26(3) of the FUFA competitions rules which establish that, “A player(s) whose license cannot be presented by club officials at the time of inspection, shall be ineligible to play in the respective FUFA competition match.
Accordingly, CDP Tooro United FC loses the match against Onduparaka by forfeiture.”

The club has made the back pages for all the wrong reasons: prior to the Onduparaka game, a core of their star players did not travel with the team to Fort Portal as they cited uncleared arrears.
Consequently, the players petitioned FUFA, asking the federation to intervene on the matter and clarify on who is the right owner of the club.
