Red Pepper’s Rugyendo voted FSL chairman


RED Pepper’s Arinaitwe Rugyendo

Federation of Uganda Football Association [Fufa] resolved to end a standoff with FUFA Super League [FSL] on Thursday.

The standoff initially arose when Fufa withdrew FSL’s mandate of running the league, citing improper management of sponsorship funds by Azam TV.

As a result of the stalemate, Azam TV was yet to pay out their sponsorship package for the 2015/16 top-flight league.

In the new arrangement, both Fufa and FSL will share on the Azam TV monies.

“Following the charter signed between the FSL, clubs and Fufa, I have been assured the issues were or are going to be resolved,” Edgar Watson, the Fufa CEO, said in a statement.

Meanwhile, FSL meeting held at Arirang Hotel on Wednesday evening, elected Red Pepper director, Arinaitwe Rugyendo, as chairman.

Rugyendo takes over from Hajji Abbas Kaawaase whose term expired.

Rugyendo currently represents The Saints FC.

Rugyendo was part of the Uganda Cranes Initiative that has been trying to raise funds for the national team.
