Yesterday,the Uganda Premiere League organizers FUFA announced how Mbarara City FC was not allowed to play in this years Uganda Premiere League due to the fact that they did not have a standard play ground among other issues.
The club has responded positively and below is the full statement from the club
On a sad note we received communication from FUFA informing us about the decision that has been taken by the Licencing board.
As as a club we want to apologise to our fans and the entire football family in western Uganda and the whole country.
The club has been doing all it can in the very short time to make sure the stadium is upgraded to the required standards and we have registered progress on the work though we have not managed to beat the deadline. but the works will continue as we sort out the issue of clearing the club to play in the league.
We want to assure our fans and the public that the club management will work against the clock to engage FUFA and an appeal will be submitted tomorrow morning to make sure the decision is reversed,
We shall abide by the option of hosting a few league games away from home as we complete the upgrade of kakyeka to the required standards.
We believe we shall have a solution to this issue by the end of tomorrow Wednesday 26-09-2018.
We shall keep an update on what shall be agreed upon by Mbarara city Fc and FUFA.
We once again extend our sincere apologies to our fans and a sure them that we shall do everything we can to make sure the team plays it’s opening league game on Friday.
We request our fans to be flexible and bare with the inconveniences that shall be caused by change of the Hosting ground for the start.
But this shall only last for a few games and we shall return to our home.
Lets stand as a family as we solve this problem.
We thank you.
Mbarara City Fc Chairman.
