Uganda Rugby Union Warns Clubs Against Fans Entry

Rugby Union body in the country, URU, has warned clubs against fans entrance during Nile Stout Rugby Premier League.

The shortened season has been ongoing on various grounds and six matchdays have been played so far.

The Union says that they have noticed that most clubs are not observing Covid19 guidelines, including allowing fans yet games are supposed to be played behind closed doors.

Last season was called off due to Covid19 before Heathens were declared champions.

Before restart of Competitions, the government of Uganda put strict Covid19 guidelines to be followed – These included testing of players every after two weeks, no fans entrance among others.

“Reference is made to return to play covid19 guidelines document that we sent out before the start of the competitions, where we documented the SOPs that need to be followed for all the training matches and games,” reads a letter from URU to clubs.

“It has come to our attention that some of these SOPs are being flaunted with particular reference to spectators being allowed at games.

“Please note that the position of government has not changed including the requirements that games are held in close stadia (no spectators).

“We therefore expect you to strictly enforce these SOPs for all those involved in the games and to avoid further action by Uganda Rugby Union and/or National Council of Sports.”
