Court of Appeal on Friday dismissed with costs the appeal lodged by Uganda Super League Limited (USSL) challenging the judgement of Justice Yasin Nyanzi who had earlier dismissed their application for a temporary injunction against FUFA and Azam Pay TV.
USSL appealed after High Court dismissed their application challenging FUFA’s termination of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) they had signed to broadcast the top flight league.
“Football has won again. Our colleagues at USSL should now join us to develop football in the country. Let us support Azam as they do the best for the game,” said Alex Luganda, chairman of the FUFA Legal committee.
The judgement at the Court of Appeal was passed by Justice Remmy Kasule.
“We are happy that our legal team is doing a good job. They have patiently handled all the cases with utmost research and knowledge about the 17 cases won by FUF A when dragged to court by various people on matters regarding football,” said FUFA CEO Edgar Watson.
“Counsel Evans Ochieng and FUFA Legal Officier Denis Lukambi have also done a wonderful job on the legal part of the federation.”
The decision by the Court of Appeal gives Azam Pay TV the unconditional live broadcasts of the Azam Uganda Premier League.
