FUFA Big League club Wakiso Giants Football Club awaits a board room decision by the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) competitions committee concerning the fate of their Uganda Cup round of 64 earlier scheduled for the Christmas eve.

This follows the failure of Vision Football Club to travel for the game that had been slated for the Kyabazinga Stadium, Bugembe on the outskirts of Jinja Municipal.

Like Wakiso Giants, the fate of a couple of more games will be known in the board following the failure of the matches to kick off for varying reasons.

Paidha Black Angels – Express FC match was not played because Paidha Black Angels arrived late at the venue and failed too, to provide security.

Kabale Sharp failed to travel to Northern Uganda where they were scheduled to face Calvary Football Club.

In Kumi, the Akadot – Kitara FC game was also not played because Akadot reached the venue late and failed to provide security as well.

Jinja Municipal Council Hippos, a second tier club was supposed to play Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) in Jinja but the match did not materialise because JMC Hippos failed to show up at the Mandela National Stadium.

The FUFA Competitions Committee will first study the match referees’ reports for the matches affected before coming up with a decision
