The Federation of Uganda Football Associations education programme of ‘Clubs Pro Agenda’ continues to gear up in different football regions across the country.
Clubs Pro Agenda is a practice attended by Club officials in preparation for the Club Licensing process.
With the aim of professionalizing Club football in the long run, FUFA made a decision to have a compulsory Clubs Pro Agenda programme for both StarTimes Uganda Premier League Clubs (1st Division) and StarTimes FUFA Big League Clubs (2nd Division)
In trying to achieve the objective, FUFA appointed 28 instructors in nine (9) different groups that are responsible for facilitating Clubs’ officials under the Club Pro Agenda programme across the country.
Governance, Sporting Element, Finance, Infrastructure, Planning, Events, and Match Organisation, Club Licensing rules, FUFA and its Development Program are the modules facilitated during this year’s Clubs Pro Agenda Programme.
‘In this year’s Club Licensing process, we decided to prepare clubs for licensing through the programme of Clubs Pro Agenda. Each Club attends the programme for two days. It’s a programme that is aimed at professionalising Club football in the long run’ said Rogers Mulindwa FUFA Club Licensing Committee Chairman.
‘However, the Federation appointed 28 instructors to be in charge of facilitating Club officials across the country and the process will climax on Friday 17th July’ added Mulindwa.
