KCCA have been slapped with a sanction and caution on two counts of Covid rules breach and hooliganism.
In a circular released on Tuesday, March 16, 2021, the 13-time StarTimes Uganda Premier League (SUPL) champions are accused of allowing fans into the stadium for their game against Police.
The game in question was played on Saturday, March 13, at MTN-Omondi Stadium, Lugogo “without written authorization from Fufa and most of the fans were seen not wearing face masks.”
The Competitions Disciplinary Panel triggered Article 10 of the Fufa COVID-19 Regulations to sanction KCCA with one match to be played under closed doors.
That next home UPL match will be played in the second round.
“Should you fail to heed to the sanction above, the CDP shall be constrained to
take stringent disciplinary measures against you,” warned Deo Mutabazi, the chairman CDP.
In the second case, disciplinary proceedings were opened against the management of KCCA after their fans reportedly hurled threats at the assistant referee.
The fans were also accused of persistently standing in a sitting area whilst the game was in progress on the match played on Tuesday, February at Kabaka-Kyabaggu stadium.
The above incident caused stoppage of
the match for about six minutes.
“Article 30 (8) provides that ‘clubs in a competition are responsible for order and security both inside and outside the stadium before, during and after matches,” read in part a communication from the CDP.
The CDP, henceforth, “cautions KCCA FC against Hooliganism and implores KCCA to further sensitize the club fans about the misgivings of the same and the sanctions thereto.
“Should the acts of hooliganism continue to occasion, the CDP shall be constrained to sanction KCCA FC as provided under Article 30(8) (c) mentioned herein above.”
Attached below are the two verdicts.
