The FUFA Competition Department had a meeting with Chief Executive Officers clubs in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League on Thursday 8th June 2023 at the FUFA Complex in Mengo.
The main aim of the workshop was to train users for the CAF Club Licensing Online Platform (CLOP) and accelerate the implementation and use of the CLOP by the clubs starting with 1st division league clubs.
While addressing the attendees of the event, Darius Mugoye the FUFA 2nd Vice President informed them that CAF has launched the Club Licensing Online Platform, a system that allows CAF and the federations to manage the process of club licensing and stadium inspections fully online and electronically.
“This is a great step forward in the club licensing system in Africa, which allows us to achieve more quickly the professionalization of our competitions and clubs at all levels,” he said.
