Four-time league champions Uganda Revenue Authority Football Club have been taxed a fee amounting to UGX 100,000 for their four yellow cards booked during a 1-0 loss to Kirinya Jinja SS FC on Saturday 16th September.
At the Kyabazinga Stadium in Bugembe, during a match in the Azam Uganda Premier League (AUPL), Richard Kasagga, Fred Okot, Siraje Sentamu and Abdulrahman Ajab were all booked.
According to the UPL CEO, Bernard Bainemani, the Tax Collectors were in breach of Article 29(6) of FUFA Competitions Rules that provides, “if a club/team accumulates four (4) or more cautions and /or send-offs served within a single match, it shall pay a fine of 100 UAs to the TOC.
The Ibrahim Kirya-coached side has been tasked to the fine before Matchday III kick-off else they risk playing without the quartet.
“In event that the fine is not paid, such players shall be ineligible to play in subsequent matches irrespective of the number of cautions so far earned.
“The Secretariat has invoked the above Article and fined URA FC 100 UAs (Shs100.000) which should be paid to UPL Secretariat before the said players are fielded for your next fixture.
URA return to action on Tuesday 19th September as they take Prisons sides Maroons FC.
