SUPER Division Clubs Association (SDCA) want to abandon the Uganda Super League currently run by football governing body FUFA and start their own.

SDCA said they will push through the plan if their members are not incorporated into the FUFA competitions Committee.

The SDCA executive of Godfrey Kisekka met the members at Hotel Africana on Friday and briefed them about the plan arguing that FUFA was oppressing clubs.

The meeting follows an earlier one Kisekka and his secretary Kavuma Kabenge had with sports state minister Charles Bakkabulindi to present their grievances and the plan to secede from FUFA.

SDCA complained to the minister that FUFA had discarded seasoned administrators Rajab Kisekka and Ben Omoding whom they had proposed to be involved in management of the league fixtures.

“We want new members of SDCA to be on the FUFA competitions committee because Rajab and Omoding were pushed out.” an official who preferred anonymity said.

But the minister advised them to meet FUFA and try to strike a compromise.

SDCA will make a final decision on their breakaway scheme after an arbitration meeting with the National Council of Sports (NCS) today.

A club official said today’s meeting is decisive.

“If the meeting does not yield anything, they start their own competition,” an official explained.

SDCA also wants FUFA to rescind their decision to fine Express FC sh2m for abandoning a league with Bunamwaya last month.

Express also lost six points for the act.

This is not the first time SDCA is threatening to start their own league.

Last year, Kisekka who is also acting KCC chairman and board chairman of Nakivubo stadium and former Express official Kavuma Kabenge had threatened a similar move.

The officials were protesting impromptu changes in league fixtures.

But the move backfired after the failure to get a consensus from SCDA members.
