The FUFA competitions Disciplinary committee ruled and ordered a replay between Mbale Heroes and ADMIN FC with both the teams standing a chance of topping the Bukedi group however the board of ADMIN FC found this in appropriate and hence released a statement pulling out of any FUFA related activities as they judged the federation for promoting match fixing.

ADMIN FC played out to a goalless draw against Mbale Hereos in their last game of the season which saw them finish top of the Bukedi group.

The FUFA Competitions Disciplinary Committee ruling is as follows

“ADMIN Football Club-Tororo has officially with immediate effect pulled out of all FUFA/Football related activity. The ruling by FUFA is not only bias and made in bad faith but also promotes Match fixing!! The Admin FC board has chosen not to seek redress anywhere but rather pull out of the league to leave room for FUFA to push the team of their interest.” Read a statement released by the club on their social media pages.

Will will now wait for the next action by the Eastern Region Football Association and the Federation on whether Mbale Heroes will be considered as the winners of the Bukedi group inorder to play the playoff match against Kigulu.
