URA FC face a fine for having four players cautioned in their 1-0 defeat to Kirinya Jinja SS on Saturday.

The four time champions will have to part with Ugx. 100,000 after Richard Kasagga, Abdulrahman Ajab, Siraje Sentamu and Fred Okot were all booked at Kyabazinga stadium, Bugembe.

The new rules state that clubs face an automatic fine if four or more players are shown yellow cards in the same game and URA reached that mark when Sentamu Siraje got into the book.

In event that the fine is not paid, such players shall be ineligible to play in subsequent matches irrespective of the number of cautions so far earned.

URA make a short trip to Luzira where they face Maroons in their third league game of the season.
