Kyetume advised to drop to third tier

Fufa has advised Kyetume to drop to the third tier of Ugandan football after failing to meet Uganda Premier League licensing requirements.

In a statement released by Fufa, Kyetume failed to beat the deadline for submitting requirements for application of a club license required to play in the top division.

“Kyetume FC fails to meet set deadlines of submitting minimum requirements for application of a Club License to participate in the FUFA Organised Competitions 2022/23 season…,” read a statement in parts.

“By 12th August 2022, Kyetume FC had only three players registered on the FUFA Connect System. A minimum of 18 players is required to be on the system. The club’s readiness to take part in the FUFA organised competitions is not satisfactory.

“The decision of the Club Licensing Committee not to issue Kyetume FC a FUFA Club License for the 2022/23 season is therefore upheld.

“FUFA advises Kyetume FC to undertake the process of meeting the club licensing requirements for the Third Division Buganda Region for the 2022/23 season. The club has a right of appeal through the FUFA Licensing Appeals body by Monday 22nd August 2022, 17:00 hours.”

It remains to be seen whether Kyetume will do the needful before fixtures are released ahead of the kick-off of 2022/23 on September 30.
