The FUFA Licensing Board (FLB) on Wednesday finalized a month-long evaluation exercise to establish compliance by clubs to participate in the FUFA Super League this coming season.

FUFA spokesman Rogers Mulindwa confirmed that the clubs that have met the minimum standards include Bidco FC, Proline, URA, KCC, Kiira Young, Victoria University, Victors FC, Vipers SC, Police, Water FC and Entebbe FC.

 

Mulindwa says Express SC and Masaka LC have requested for more time which was granted with a penalty of 100,000 shillings.

Mulindwa however said that SC Villa, Maroons FC and Simba SC have since showed no interest in the exercise and FLB has therefore advised that three FUFA Big League clubs in their order of sporting merit last season, be alerted for verification starting September 10 as a replacement for the defiant clubs.

Only FUFA licensed clubs shall have their players’ licenses processed and endorsed by the Federation. In order to obtain the club license, minimum standards were set in the areas of finance, infrastructure, sporting merit, quality and quantity of personnel (technical and administrative) managing the club, legal club structure and compliance among others. The tentative date for the kick off of this year’s season was put on September 25.

Mulindwa said the world football body, FIFA, had also announced a reward to the compliant clubs with an approval of a two-day residential course. The course is to run from September 12-13 and will mainly cover the areas of effective club management and resource mobilization.
