Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) President Eng. Moses Magogo has appreciated the players, fans, sponsors, g

government and the major stake holders that work day and night to see the growth of football in the country.

“I thank the fans who have been with us all through supporting Uganda football as they got the result against Madagascar to progress.We organize these games for the fans not our selves”, he said during the weekly press conference held at FUFA house in Mengo today.


Collective Responsibility:

Magogo further explained  that the federation is the most interested party that would like to see the national team qualify for the African Nations cup finals since 1978.

“There is a lot done behind the scenes as we prepare the national team for an international engagement ranging from the players’ preparations, administrative work and every other effort to have matches played”, he told the media.


Sponsors and Partners:

The Federation is glad about the national team’s sponsors and partners (Airtel Uganda, Nile Breweries, and National Insurance Corporation).

“The sponsors help in getting the players through the first phase, then the second phase where we have planned for six international games in a month” Magogo, who  also hinted about the federation re-branding process highlighted.

FIFA Development Budget Increased:

The president hinted on the increased package from the world’s ruling body as regards the development of the game.

“The federation is happy that the development will continue given the increment in the FIFA development funds. The value, brand and image of the federation will definitely continue to grow at Fufa . The increased budget can help us improve on infrastructure, women, youth and education”, said Magogo

He however explained the development can never be spent on the national senior team-Uganda Cranes

Rallies for Continued Government Support:

Governments world over play crucial roles as regards the development of games and recreational departments of the respective nations.

Similarly, the FUFA president reechoed the need for the substantial support from Government as far as the football development process is concerned.

“We can’t achieve success by expecting the federation to perform miracles. These players on national duty need to be remunerated well”, he urged, as he also rallied support from other stake holders such as the media.

The FUFA president was among the hundreds of football delegates at the 2014 FIFA congress in Brazil.

FIFA has 209 members and Fufa was represented by the President himself, Federation CEO Edgar Watson and Justus Mugisha.
