FIFA Development Officer Assistant in charge of administration and events, M/S Kelebogile Mosimanewapula has this Friday morning returned to Gaborone after a three-day visit to Uganda to finalize arrangements for the FIFA Com Unity seminar scheduled to start on February 27.

During her stay in Kampala, Kelebogile met the targeted seminar presenters at the federation headquarters in Mengo, inspected Mandela National Stadium-Namboole and visited Imperial Royale Hotel where the three-day seminar will be hosted among other activities.

The seminar will bring together the host member association, the government, potential sponsors and members of the media among other sectors. Kelebogile said the arrangement was to assist FUFA in launching specific projects for women football where long term financial support was needed.

“This will assist FUFA with promotional strategies and actions in order to create awareness and attract support for the organization of women football” she said.

It is also aimed at promoting women’s football and attract investment/interest in the game from other sectors of the community outside the football family on top of promoting partnership between the football family and the government.

“The seminar will also equip FUFA with tools to market, promote and develop women football” Kelebogile further said.

FUFA CEO Edgar Watson said the seminar was timely and that close to 120 participants were expected including a few selected parliamentarians. The Hon. Munister of Sports Charles Bakabulindi will officially open the seminar in presence of the FUFA president Lawrence Mulindwa.

The topics to be covered will include women football strategy and development, grass root football development programs, impact of women football on social and educational development programs, the role of the media in women football development, communication strategy towards women football development and benefits for sponsors of women football among many others.

The seminar will close on March 2 with a girls’ festival at Namboole. Over 100 girls are expected to attend the activity aimed at displaying to the community that women football is played in Uganda.
