BIG League matches involving Boroboro Tigers could again be delayed if referees go ahead with their threat to boycott the team’s encounters, James Bukenya reports.

According to a referee who did not want to be named, nobody will risk his life by taking charge of a game involving the Lira-based side, after fans molested a number of officials during last season’s Uganda Super League.

In one incident, former FIFA assistant referee Robert Bukenya was severely beaten during a match against Bunamwaya. His kit bag was also stolen in the confusion.

Boroboro fans’ behaviour played a part in their relegation as their home ground was later banned. They failed to travel for some of their home games.

Referee Peter Kutegana also tested the fans’ wrath and Coach Moses Basena while still at Simba SC was escorted away by military men on handcuffs when the army side equalised against Boroboro.
