Express Football Club is far away from finding a fitting solution to eliminate vices of stadia violence and hooliganism amongst its fans.
On several occasions, the Red Eagles have been found guilty for inciting violence and causing chaos during league games.
The FUFA Competitions Disciplinary Panel has fined Express FC 1.5 million shillings ($ 400) after their fans were found guilty of pelting stones and throwing objects towards match officials in the 3-1 loss to KCCA FC.
According to the statement, Express FC fans threw objects towards, KCCA FC defender John Revita, formerly at Express FC and also beat up KCCA FC fans at Kyabaggu Stadium.
“FUFA Competitions Disciplinary Panel has fined Express FC UGX1.5M, warned them strongly against future actions over their fans’ behavior,” read part of the statement issued on the FUFA twitter handle.
“On 13.11.2019 2019 Express FC fans during & after the match vs KCCA FC, threw objects at the match officials, John Revita and KCCA FC fans.”
It’s the second time this season that the club has been fined – first, it was their coach George Ssimwogerere who had to part ways with Shillings 0.5 million for encouraging ball boys to hide match balls.
