FUFA Competitions Directors Aisha Nalule confirmed that the losing team at this stage is entitled to getting Sh3M.
She added: “The cards – Yellow and Red cards – only apply in this competition, but an extra punishment can be applied. Each team is obliged to honour its fixture and no excuses will be tolerated.
“All the home teams are advised that they will get 50% of the gate collection, with Away and FUFA getting 30 and 20% of the amount.”
FUFA, together with Stanbic Bank Uganda, will once again carry out Corporate Social Responsibility(CSR) activities as a way of giving back to the general public through the beautiful game.
Leilah Nankya, Events manager at FUFA, commented that they target more vulnerable people.
“We want to make an impact in the society through football,” Nankya said. “We are taking the needy schools and hospitals. So, from today, we want to collect clothes and bring them here at FUFA or Stanbic Bank Uganda offices.”
