SC Villa will hold their first ever Congress on July 17 since the side transitioned into a cummunity ownership model late last year.

The Congress, the clubs’ Supreme body, will be held scientifically and will also see Villa statutes promulgated.

It will also rubber-stamp the roadmap to the election of the president and executive board, as well as ratify the sporting and business status of the club.

“The credentials to access the scientific Congress will be sent to the fully paid-up members upon confirmation of payment,” read in particular a release from the club.

The Congress happens after close to seven months from when it was first due last last year.

Registration of Villa Members Trust was first announced at Sheraton last October, with the first Congress marked for December 31 the same year.

But a multitude of issues off the pitch slowed down progress.

However, the Congress will now take place, with only members who have subscribed with the annual Shs50,000 and an additional annual Shs1m to attend.

Over 400 members have subscribed with Shs50,000 since the exercise kicked off last year according to Villa records.

“The members were entitled to free access to the 15 league (home) matches of the 2020/21 season,” said Villa CEO Shawn Mubiru.

“(But) Considering the effects of Covid-19, the current membership and the new registered up to 31st December 2021 shall be entitled to free access to the 15 league matches of the 2021/22 season.”
