About the Ordinary FUFA General Assembly
The Ordinary FUFA General Assembly is the supreme and legislative body of football in Uganda and is comprised of 34 members (Associations) that are represented by 88 delegates.
The Assembly takes place annually where delegates convene and review activities carried out in the previous twelve months plus planning for the future.
According to Article 21 (2) of the FUFA Statutes and Regulations, the FUFA President conducts business at the General Assembly in compliance with the standing orders.
Some of the key areas of address in the FUFA Ordinary General Assembly include activity report, financial statements, budgets, permission of entrants to new members and dismissing of members among others.
FUFA decided that the General Assembly should be rotated in all the 8 football regions with each region given a chance to host the coveted assembly. The rotation is done until the 8 regions are covered and the same sequence is repeated for the next years.
Prior to the Ordinary FUFA General Assembly, all member associations convene independent annual assembles in accordance with the FUFA Statutes.
This allows resolutions and reports from Members Associations to be agreed on before they are presented in the FUFA General Assembly for discussion.
