Club football: Momentous FUFA/FSLL/UPL symposium successfully climaxes

The first ever club football symposium for the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) in conjunction with the FUFA Super League Limited  (FSLL) and Uganda Premier League (UPL) successfully ended at the FUFA Technical center on Sunday.


The two day historic symposium that was attended by the club Chief Executive Officers (CEO), coaches and some of the club chairman was intended to bring together divergent views on how best to develop club football to the brim.

The main target among others for all the 16 elite premier league clubs inclined on the road to formulate a 10 year club football development plan.

For starters, this grand plan initially started with the first ever Ugandan football symposium held in January 2015 at the Imperial Royale Hotel in Kampala.


Chief facilitator, Moses Magogo thanked all the participants in a special way for dedicating their precious time resource to convene and discuss football for the betterment of general growth of the beautiful game.

Key on the agenda were the means of how to improve the football quality (product), its packaging, promotion and pricing to prospective sponsors and fans.

‘Club football is key of the main pillars upon which football development is built world wide. We are in Njeru to formulate a 10 year development plan for Uganda’s club football’ Magogo clarified.

Club coaches, chairmen, CEO’s and a selected section of the media brain stormed various ideas at hand intended to help the development of club football.
