URA midfielder Ivan Sserubiri has been banned for one month and fined Ug. 500,000 following his violent conduct.

The Fufa Competitions Disciplinary Panel found Sserubiri’s conduct wanting as he nearly slapped assistant referee Lydia Wanyana after she ruled out an offside goal by Cromwell Rwothomio in the 83rd minute at the Arena of Visions in the 1-1 draw with Wakiso Giants.

“FUFA Competitions Disciplinary Panel has handed URA FC player Sserubiri Ivan a one month suspension and fined him UGX 500,000 for breaching the FUFA Competitions rules and regulations Articles 31(2) and 31(3) during his club’s match with Wakiso Giants FC on 28th December 2021.

“Sserubiri threatened to violently attack assistant referee Nantabo Lydia Wanyama. The player’s conduct put the game of football into disrepute. The suspension expires on 3rd February 2022.”

Sserubiri will miss games against Gaddafi, Soltilo Bright Stars and KCCA but returns for URA’s second round opener against Busoga United on February 5.
