Henceforth, FUFA has directed its various bodies concerned with the organization of the FUFA Competitions to include Sports Club Villa in the FUFA Competitions fixtures inclusive of the fixtures of the 2021/22 Uganda Premier League with immediate effect.

That said, Sports Club Villa who missed the opening two match days of the 2021-2022 will kick off play by match day three.

FUFA had cited the element of governance for not including the record Uganda Premier League champions onto the fixtures for this season.
