Soroti football fans have rejected the teams selected by the Copa Coca Cola organising committee to represent the team in the tournament at district level.


The organising committee met on Tuesday evening at Paradise Villa and selected Soroti SS and Light SS represent Soroti in the regional Coca Cola competitions.


The decision to select representation for the district was reached after fans interfered in what was supposed to be the finals to determine a winner.


Soroti Secondary School and Light Secondary School were slated to play in the finals on Monday.


However, the match failed to take off after fans invaded the pitch claiming that Noor SS had been cheated out of its rightful place in the finals.


Fans were angry that Soroti SS was allowed on the pitch yet it had lost its semi-final match.


But Soroti football fans have rejected the decision of the organising committee.


A group of fans who call themselves Idiots FC have vowed not to allow the decision of the organizing committee to stand. They argue that it breeds confusion in football in Soroti.


Patrick Oyenga Ojala, one of the fans and also a member of the Idiot’s group, vowed to block Soroti SS from ever participating in the football tournament in the district again.

Cue out:…Corruption .”//


He said it was the right of fans to know who had won the tournament instead of organisers selecting a winner by themselves.


The Chairperson Soroti Football Fans, Francis Etiu said they would investigate the manner in which the organizing committee run the Copa Coca Cola tournament in Soroti.


He said the tournament organisers should refund fans if they had failed to organise matches.

Cue out:.. refund the fee.”//


Meanwhile Salamu Juma Mwima, the coach for Soroti Noor SS, told URN that the school had not received any communication from the organizing committee since Monday.
