Police FC will play their first second round home game of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League (SUPL) behind closed doors after they were slapped with sanctions for breach of Covid regulations.

Authorities accuse the management of the club of allowing spectators into the stadium for the Police home game against Express on March 16, 2021 at the MTN-Omondi facility, Lugogo without written authorization from FUFA.

“And most of the fans were seen not wearing face masks,” reads in part a circular from the Competitions Disciplinary Panel.

Article 10 of the FUFA COVID-19 Regulations establishes that, “All matches shall be played without spectators,” and that “fans shall only be allowed with written permission from FUFA.”

Article 11 of the FUFA COVID-19 Regulations also emphasizes wearing of face masks at all times while in the stadium

With the above said to have been breached, the CDP noted that Police had been previously cautioned, and that it was time now for a sterner decision.

The “CDP hereby SANCTIONS POLICE FC for violation of the FUFA COVID-19 regulations with one match under closed stadium for the next home game under the Uganda Premier League.

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

Attached is the official ruling. DECISION POLICE FC COVID
