FUFA Big League (Thursday Results):
- Airtel – Kitara 3-0 Entebbe (Entebbe failed to travel in Hoima)
- Sun City 3-1 Kireka United
- Kyambogo 1-1 Simba
Rwenzori group FUFA Big League club Airtel-Kitara has determined the fate of two Entebbe based sides this season.
A couple of weeks ago, when Airtel–Kitara defeated Mbarara City 4-2 at their barren and dusty Boma playground, it was advantage granted to Masavu as the Katabi–Kitubulu club attained promotion to the Uganda Premier League.
On Thursday, Airtel–Kitara was supposed to host another side from Entebbe Municipality, Entebbe Football Club.
However, Entebbe F.C skipped the match to give the home side three valuable points.
The development implies that Entebbe is the second team to be relegated to the Regional League from the FUFA Big League this season after Boma Young which pulled out due to limited resources.
The FUFA Competitions department headed by Ali Mwebe will come out to pronounce themselves on the matter.
In the other Rwenzori Group match played, Sun City overcame visiting Kireka United 3-1 at the Hima Cement playground in Kasese.
