The Uganda Premier League secretariat has postponed the clash between Express and Wakiso Giants that was due to take place on Saturday November 11, 2023.

“The UPL Secretariat has been guided by FUFA to postpone M#56 Wakiso Giants FC vs Express FC that was scheduled to be played on Saturday 11th November 2023,” part of the statement signed by UPL CEO Bernard Bainamani reads.

“This is to allow judicial bodies conclude matters relating to M#38 UPDF FC vs Express FC match.”

This is the second fixture involving Express FC that has been suspended after the game against city rivals Villa was also postponed last week.

“The two fixtures involving Express FC that have been postponed to date will be scheduled as soon as the said matters are concluded.”

The Uganda Football Referees Associations (UFRA) have since suspended their services in officiating matches involving the Red Eagles, a move which the FA supported.

The seven-time champions are under investigations with allegations that their fans beat up assistant referee Fahad Sekayiba in the aftermath of their 1-1 draw with UPDF in Bombo close to a fortnight ago.

Two suspects have been arrested and are expected to arraigned in courts of law this week.
