The Fufa Disciplinary Panel has awarded Vipers 3 goals and as many points following their successful petition over Tooro United’s use of an ineligible player.
Tooro United defeated Vipers 1-0 at Buhinga but used an ineligible player Ronald Kayondo who was supposed to be suspended after accumulating three yellow cards.
Kayongo was booked in matches away to Onduparaka (8th January 2022), at home against Onduparaka (8th February 2022), and against Sports Club Villa on 16th February 2022.

The aforementioned player could have sat out Police FC’s match which did not happen and subsequently featured in the next one against the Kitende side.
In so doing, “Tooro violated Article 30 par (9), (15) and Articles 19(19) of the FUFA Competitions rules,” the FUFA Disciplinary Panel stated on Saturday.
That puts Vipers on 49 points, seven ahead of second placed KCCA with 21 matches played while Tooro United stay bottom with nine points.
