Beach Soccer: FIFA MA referees course attracts 26 in Njeru

Beach Soccer in Uganda has continued to take big strides with the growth of the game covering areas of administration, management, national teams and refereeing.

The desire by FUFA and FIFA to help the referees get further technical knowledge of the game has seen the world soccer governing body send French beach soccer referees’ instructor Lakhdar Benchabane to Uganda to handle a group of participants categorized as active referees and referees’ assessors for the FIFA MA Beach soccer referees.

The five-day course that started on Monday 9 th October 2023 has attracted twenty-six beach soccer referees’ instructors and active referees are taking part at the FUFA Technical Centre, Njeru.

The course ends this Friday.

Uganda Beach Soccer Association Chairman Deo Mutabazi, Buganda region FA Delegate Hassan Kavuma and FUFA Football Development Director Ali Mwebe graced the opening ceremony.

UBSA Charman Deo Mutabazi was the Chief Guest at the opening ceremony and said;

‘The course is very timely for our game in Uganda. It will help us as we continue with preparations for the new season. We thank FIFA and FUFA for the gesture and we believe this is going to improve on the officiating levels in all our competitions. The course will add so much value to the referees due to the modules presented to the participants’

The participants (6 of the 26 are female) will undergo various modules including duties of the time keeper and third referee, opinions and exchange with the referees, among others.
