“This will help the public and football family understand and have more trust on how the Judicial system operates.” She stated.

The FUFA Judicial process will undergo a pilot project to migrate to the online system from the current ordinary service delivery where cases are filed manually.

The FUFA Judicial Bodies will hold review meetings during the mid season and the off season just before the start of the new football season.

FUFA Legal Manager Lukambi noted that there has been a drop in cases registered by the FUFA Legal office in the just concluded season. This is attributed to players, referees and club officials getting more knowledgeable on how and where to submit their complaints to for justice.
