Villa expelled from tournament, fined 4 million shillings

SC Villa have been expelled from this yearís Bell Uganda Cup and stand to lose a further Shs4.4m following the abandonment of the quarterfinal clash with URA on Tuesday.

The game in Lugazi was called off in the 71st minute as the visiting fans attacked match officials and players with missiles leading to gunshots and teargas.
URA were leading 3-1 but the visitors contested the third goal, a penalty.

Fufa Competitions Committee (FCC) secretary Decolas Kiiza announced the decision in Mengo yesterday with Villa being given two weeks to appeal.
"SC Villa loses the match by forfeiture such that URA 3-0 SC Villa. The three goal scorers for URA will stand," Kiiza wrote in a statement he read to the media.

Among the seven sanctions, the eight-time Cup champions were also fined Shs300,000 for refusing to play when "calm returned."

Another Shs2m fine for abandoning must be paid as well as refund Shs1.05m so far earned from the sponsorsí purse. They will also lose the 20% (Shs66, 500) entitlement from the gates.
"SC Villa is requested to provide the main leaders of the violent conduct or be fined Shs1m," added Kiiza.

The clubís troubles stretch into the file being forwarded to the Fufa disciplinary committee for further sanctions. Repeated efforts to get a reaction from Villa failed as our calls went unanswered.

But Villa will want to quickly forget off-field misdemeanors and that opportunity could have been timely as they take on Police in the Bell Super League at Namboole in SuperSportís live game. The reverse fixture ended goalless with Police goalkeeper Eddy Kaweesa being the difference.

Despite the Uganda Cup defeat, Villa have an unblemished record in their last two league games, beating Maroons and Water. Mike Mutebiís side could move to 31 points with victory but will stay seventh if Maroons beat Proline at Nakivubo, a game that will start at 3pm.

Fred Kajobaís Simba will be looking to stay their onslaught of getting back into the top 10 with victory over second from the bottom Hoima-Busia at Bombo. Should the soldiers pull it off, they will have won four games on the trot.
