Hooliganism: Express Ordered To Play Behind Closed Doors

FUFA’s Competition Disciplinary Panel (CDP) has ordered UPL side Express FC to host their next home game behind closed doors.

This comes as a punishment after the club fans were found guilty of throwing objects at the assistant referee, among others, during their league game against Maroons.

It is said that the Red Eagles fans misbehaved during and after their Uganda Cup loss to Maroons at Kavumba.

Consequently, no spectators will be allowed as Express FC play host to URA FC on Tuesday, February 25 at Kavumba Recreation centre.

Club fan Hakeem Ssemanda ‘Kawonawo’ has been banned from attending all football matches for 10 months.

The ruling says that Express FC fans broke the driving mirror of Maroons FC’s bus.

Express FC was represented by CEO Junju Hamza while Shaban Hamis Odoa represented by Maroons FC in the hearing.

The article 30(8) of the competitions states that the clubs in a competition are responsible for order and security both inside and outside the stadium before, during and after the matches.
