FUFA Issues SC Villa Conditions To Receive Provisional License

SC Villa have been tasked to submit a compliance plan if they are to receive a provisional license for the 2021/22 season.

The 16-time Record UPL winners were left out of the league fixture and consequently missed match-day one due to Governance issues.

FUFA Club Licensing Committee has confirmed that they are considering Villa’s appeal.

The conditions given to Villa include holding Elections by November 12, Pay arrears of players and officials and produce a contract of CEO.

If they agree to the above among other conditions, which must be done through writing a compliance plan, Villa will be issued a provisional licence.

It should be remembered that the Club’s Trustees replaced CEO Shawn Mubiru with Brenda Nambalirwa Kawuma who has since been banned by FUFA for taking football matters into court.

A recent development confirmed that Muhammad Bazirengedde is now the new SC Villa CEO and the club will host games at Kavumba.

The Conditions In Details:

  1. Sports Club Villa shall hold elections of the Club President and the Executive Board within three (3) weeks from the date of this letter but in any case, not later than 1700 Hours on Saturday 13th November 2021. The said election shall have to be organised

Ball In SC Villa’s Hands

Initially, FUFA had given the club the dates of October 23 to have held elections, which have now been revised.

The Trustees of SC Villa called an extra-ordinary meeting of the paid-up club congress members on the same date (October 23) which will be held at Serena Hotel in Kigo.

SC Villa, under coach Petros Koukouras, have already expressed their readiness to play.

They missed their matchday one fixture, while the letter from appeals committee comes just day before matchday two games kickoff.

They are expected to play Arua Hills SC at the Barifa stadium this weekend, which is very likely if they comply and submit their plan in time.

The Club is yet to issue a statement per developments.
