FIFA-Government meeting to guide NCS over FUFA registration under Trusteeship Act


The National Council of Sports has written to the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) indicating that the meeting between Minister of State for Sports and world soccer governing body FIFA will guide them over the registration of FUFA under the Trusteeship Act.

FIFA has confirmed to FUFA that they will come to Uganda for a meeting on 12th July, 2016 with Minister of State for Sports Hon. Charles Bakkabulindi.

Part of the communication dated 30th June, 2016 and signed by NCS General Secretary Nicholas Muramagi states that;

‘We shall permit for a window grace period lasting up to 16th July, 2016 in which period we expect the engagement with the FIFA delegation to have concluded and a definite way forward determined’

FUFA Spokesperson Ahmed Hussein confirmed the FIFA-Government meeting.

‘The meeting will be a follow up of what has already been discussed between FUFA and Minister of State and Sports. We believe that there will be a clearer picture for NCS and FUFA after the meeting on 12th July, 2016. The laws of the country and FIFA Statutes will guide the meeting on understanding the current situation before FUFA completes its registration under the new sports guidelines’

FUFA has fulfilled all requirements under the new guidelines from NCS by submitting the necessary documents. However there have been concerns raised by FUFA to NCS that registration for the local soccer governing body under the Trusteeship Act contravenes with the FIFA statutes.
