Djoliba FC handed walkover victory over URA



Malian club Djoliba FC was handed a walkover victory over Uganda’s Revenue Authority on Sunday in Bamako following the visitors’ refusal to travel to the West African country for the return leg of the CAF Champions League round of 16 due to security reasons.

Match officials at the Stade 26 Mars acknowledged the absence of Revenue Authority for the meeting and declared the Ugandan champions forfeit.

Djoliba proceeded for a walkover thus booking their place for the round of 8 of the competition.

Revenue Authority earlier wrote to CAF to move the encounter to a neutral venue owing to continued political instability in Mali.

However, the African football governing body’s lack of response implied that the game ought to hold at the original venue.

The Mali football federation had given the Ugandans security guarantee, but seemed not enough to convince the visitors to make the trip.

Djoliba won the first leg 2-0.
