THE FUFA Competitions Committee is in a dilemma after clubs playing in the Elgon Group of the Big League have vowed to boycott the fixtures involving CRO FC.

Committee secretary Moses Magogo said they are waiting for the completion of the revised fixtures in order to come up with a decision.

“We have received the letter signed by the officials of the six teams. We are now waiting for them to effect their threat and then we shall take action,” Magogo said.

The letter by the six clubs and copied to FUFA and Super League Limited reads in part: “It is our firm decision not to honour any fixture involving CRO FC for the Big League season 2010-11 and shall play as per the first fixtures we originally receive’’.

The teams that are involved include, Ndejje University, Jogoo Young, Bishop Nankyama, Water FC, Sharing Youth, and Arua Central.

The Uganda Super League Limited, the body that runs the top league, dismissed CRO FC for failure to meet the required standards of the competition. The Mabale side sued FUFA for wrongful dismissal.

The two sides later reached an agreement for CRO to withdraw the case from the court on condition that the team will be reinstated. Instead FUFA decided enter them into the Big League.

“The registration of players ended. I wonder how the federation is going to register CRO player because this will be breaching FIFA rules,”. Jogoo Young’s manager Deo Luyimbazi reasoned.
