FUFA has today afternoon suspended the Betway Muteesa II Stadium, Wankuluku from hosting the StarTimes Uganda Premier League matches.
The Federation’s Licensing committee has taken the decision to suspend the Betway Muteesa II stadium from hosting any Football matches under its auspices due to the poor condition of the playing surface.
This development means all teams hosting their home games at the Wankulukuku Stadium will have to find alternative grounds as was the case for all teams that host their games at the Mandela National Stadium.
With effect from today, Express FC and Bright Stars, the teams that have been hosting their games at the now-suspended Muteesa II Stadium and those that have been using it as an alternative like Police FC and Wakiso Giants have to find alternative grounds to host their games until their home is deemed fit again.
The state of Wankuluku worsened after hosting a TV concert locally know as Embuutu y’Embuutikizi of Bukedde during the moment that had seen heavy downpour take its toll on the Stadium hence leading to the suspension as the letter shared below indicates.
The state of the pitch was exposed on Tuesday when Express hosted Busoga United in the domestic Startimes Ugandan League.
This comes immediately after a few days after another very important facility, Namboole is made unavailable for the league matches.
The affected fixures include Bright Stars hosting Onduparaka on Saturday and Express against Maroons on Tuesday.
