THE Super Division Clubs
Association has threatened to start
a break-away league due to what it
describes as gross mismanagement of Uganda’s top soccer competition.

SDCA chairman Godfrey Kisekka
warned FUFA’s competitions’ committee yesterday to streamline its operations or face a parallel league.

Kisekka said his members’ main
complaint was the frequent postponement of league games.

“As SDCA we are dissatisfied by
the way the league and Kakungulu
Cup have been organised but we
complied for sanity’s sake,” Kiseka
said.

Kisekka warned: “We shall soon
succumb to the radicals amongst
us and run a runaway league if
Moses Magogo (FUFA competition
committee secretary) and company
don’t repent.”

But Magogo was not only shocked
by SDCA’s stand, but also described the association’s reaction as unfair.

He insisted that what SDCA described as arbitrary postponements were only as a result of a meeting of all Super League teams.

“We agreed on tight schedules and even morning games, to give Cranes enough preparation for the
World Cup qualifiers,” Magogo said.

He said cases where teams have
played despite having national team players only arise after an agreement between the sides either to play, or not to.

Magogo also explained that the
KCC vs Bunamwaya game was put
off for genuine reasons, since visiting.

AS Vita of DRC had to train at
Nakivubo a day later than planned
because of their late arrival.

He said the pressure of the league
race was getting to some club officials who in turn are hitting at him.
