FUFA extends financial support to U17 Girls’ National team players ahead of tie with Cameroon

FUFA has extended financial support to the Uganda U17 Girls’ national team players.  Ahmed Hussein, the FUFA Communications Director, confirmed that a total of 35 players will receive $100 each.

‘FUFA will release funds to 35 players in the U17 Girls’ national team and each player will receive $100 to aid them in personal training as they prepare for the final stage of the FIFA U17 World cup qualifiers with Cameroon. The coaches have been in constant engagement with the players, sharing training manuals as we wait for Government to lift the lockdown on sports activities’ noted Hussein

‘We believe this financial facilitation will help the players to continue with personal training as we work around plans to get the team to camp in preparation for the matches against Cameroon. FUFA is ready to support the team so that we realize our target of qualifying to the 2021 FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup in India’ added Hussein.

Uganda will face Cameroon in the final qualifying round of the 2021 FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup qualifiers with the first leg in Kampala slated to take place between 31st October- 2nd November 2020 and a return leg a fortnight later.

To reach this stage, Uganda eliminated Ethiopia and Tanzania in the preliminary and first round respectively.

The beneficiaries of this financial support are players from the previous U17 Squads plus six new faces named by head coach Ayub Khalifan.

The new faces include Gift Nasasira, Winnie Kwatira, Devine Mirembe, Aucho Kagongo, Ritah Mushimire and Kamuyati Naigaga.
