FUFA Verdict On Andrew Kawooya

FUFA Dispute Resolution Chamber has made a judgment on Vipers Sc Vs KCCA FC Over Player Andrew Kawooya


1.The Player together with his guardian signed a youth agreement with Vipers SC for the duration of six (6) years instead of three (3) years contrary to Article 21 of the RSTP. It should be noted however, that the longer term duration does not invalidate the entire contract as only the clause referring to a longer duration is the one considered null and void. Accordingly, the three –year term stipulated in Article 21(D)of the FUFA RSTP comes to an end on the 23rd January 2021.

2.Article 21(B)(i) provides. “A player transferring from a FLFA shall be authorized by theMother Club.” further, clause (v) states, “It is prohibited for players registered with oneFLFA to make contact by training or playing with another FLFA or Club without thewritten consent of the FLFA that owns these players. Any party that contravenes thisprovision shall be liable to disciplinary Action.”From the facts at hand, the Player, his guardian and KCCA seem to have acted in badfaith vis-à-vis Vipers SC.
