FUFA Dismisses Onduparaka’s Petition Against Kataka Due to Double License Issue

The dispute between Onduparaka and Kataka over the eligibility of player Mohammed Nsereko has been resolved by FUFA, which ruled that there was no breach of regulations.

Onduparaka had raised concerns about Nsereko playing for three clubs in one season, which they argued violated FIFA regulations.

However, FUFA clarified that Nsereko’s participation was in line with new regulations aimed at developing young players.

These regulations allowed players under 21 to play for both their parent club and a secondary club to enhance their development.

As a result, Nsereko’s involvement with Gaddafi and Kaaro Karungi in the first round, followed by his transfer to Kataka in the second round, was deemed permissible.

The FUFA Disciplinary Panel emphasized that while Onduparaka cited Article 5.4 of the FIFA Regulations, they overlooked Article 5.5, which supplements it.

Article 5.5 states that players may not play for more than two clubs in the same national championship or cup during the same season, subject to stricter regulations of member associations.

In this case, Nsereko’s transfers were within the scope of these regulations, leading to the dismissal of Onduparaka’s petition.
