The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has directed the Uganda Premier League (UPL) Secretariat to consider 15 teams while releasing the fixtures for the 2022/23 season.
“FUFA has written to Uganda Premier League Secretariat notifying them that only 15 Clubs passed the Club Licensing exercise,” a post on the federation’s social media platforms read.
“The 15 teams should be considered for the fixtures of the 2022/2023 season,” the post added.
Kyetume had earlier appealed FUFA’s decision to demote them but the federation resolved to ditch the slaughters.
The conclusion is due to the failure to register players on the FUFA Connect System, where a minimum of 18 players is required and the deadline was August 10, 2022.
Kyetume immediately gained promotion back to the UPL when they finished third on the 11-team log – Kataka FC who finished fourth had been suggested as their successor.
Last week, the UPL manager Paul Kabaikaramu noted that it is the Kyetume issue that was delaying the release of the fixtures.
It has now been sorted and the fixtures are expected to be out soon ahead the 2022/23 UPL season slated to kick off on September 30.
