Mbarara City FC have been ordered by FUFA to play their next UPL game without fans, its official.

In a statement, FUFA said it found Mbarara City guilty of breaching its Covid19 regulations.

During their recent league game against Vipers on Saturday, March 6, it is said that Mbarara did not get written permission from FUFA to allow spectators into the stadium.

The statement adds that the majority of the fans that were allowed into Kakyeka were not wearing masks.

Article 10 of the FUFA COVID-19 Regulations establishes that “All matches shall be played without spectators” but clubs can allow in fans after acquiring a written permission from FUFA.

FUFA ruling reads: “FUFA sanctions Mbarara City FC for violating the FUFA COVID-19 regulations with one match under closed stadium for the next Uganda Premier League game which is Mbarara City Fc Vs Bright Stars to be played on Saturday 13th March 2021 at Kakyeka Stadium.”

“Should you fail to heed to the sanction above, the CDP shall be constrained to take more stringent disciplinary measures against you.”

Mbarara City went on to beat Vipers 1-0 thanks to a Henry Kitegenyi strike, and end the Venoms unbeaten run.
