A message from the MInistry of Health guiding the public on how to prevent spread of Covid-19

It is not the best situation because  we would like to go back to our normal lives where we associate, party, support and celebrate the game of the football but, we are also aware that health comes first.

I thank the frontliners, medical workers, soldiers, food suppliers, security and all service providers that have been able to control the spread of the virus and at the same time for continuity of the human life.

On behalf of football, I congratulate  all Ugandans who have accepted  directives, stayed home and respected the set guidelines. 

I thank our supporters and different entities that have supported the players, coaches and officials in their different and sometimes un-publiciced support because of the challenge we are going through.

Whereas FUFA did support the players in the four leagues (Star Times Uganda Premier League, Star Times FUFA Big League,  FUFA Women Super League and FUFA Women Elite League ), we are also aware that there are some individuals who have done a tremendous job during this period . 

I thank the football community for the support you have given in this fight against COVID-19. As FUFA we have done our  internal support and to the national task force. We need to keep following the instructions and guidelines. We are optimistic that sooner than later, life will return to normal and go back to the stadia and celebrate the goals and experience of football.
