UPL: FUFA withdraws Arua Hill license, erased from upcoming league fixtures

Kampala, (UG): The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has decided to withdraw the license of Arua Hill, expunging the club from the Uganda Premier League fixture ahead of the second-round kickoff.

The decision comes as a result of Arua Hill’s failure to meet several mandatory club licensing requirements, casting a shadow over their future in both league competitions and the upcoming Stanbic Uganda Cup.

FUFA’s decision, announced on Tuesday, has sent ripples through the football community, raising questions about the club’s standing and potential repercussions for the players, staff, and fans.

Arua Hill, a rising force in Ugandan football, has been a notable contender in the Premier League.

However, their journey takes an unexpected detour as they find themselves omitted from the fixture list for the upcoming league rounds. This comes as a significant blow, especially considering the momentum the team had built in the first round.
