The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has warned players to stop using falsified names to feature in FUFA sanctioned football tournaments at all levels.
This is a matter of impersonation that FUFA will not entertain in the football circles.
It has come to the federation’s attention that a one Mutebi Davids is alleged to have used a false identity under different names in the ongoing Masaza Cup.
Mutebi Davids is alleged to have falsely registered himself under the following names Ahmed Jagwe and Abdul Karim as opposed to the names captured in the FUFA licensing records.
This matter has been forwarded to the FUFA Disciplinary committee for further scrutiny and action.
‘FUFA is encouraging the players and teams involved in football competitions to promote the spirit of fair play by providing the proper documentation to the organisers’ said FUFA Chief Executive Office Edgar Watson.
Following this matter, FUFA would like to caution and warn all players registered with the federation to desist from playing under false names in various football competitions which might lead to severe sanctions that may include banning the culprits from football activities.
