Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) unveiled the new official logo and 4 others today during a special media briefing held at FUFA House, Mengo.
The ceremony also combined the official kick start of Uganda’s AFCON 2015 campaign.
The official new logo has the three national colours (Black, Yellow and red Yellow), five stars, a ball and the marking ‘Since 1924’ replacing the old one.
‘This is a step forward, an identity with the Federation. With this logo, FUFA now has its own trade mark and exclusive rights’ said FUFA President Moses Magogo as he unveiled the logo.
The 5 Stars on the logo are representative of the five FUFA bodies General Assembly, Executive Committee, Standing Committees, Judicial bodies and the Secretariat.
There is a football symbol with the stripes of the national flag colours (black, yellow and red) inscribed in the logo.
Below the ball symbol is the wording ‘FUFA Since 1924” the year the federation was formed.
The other 4 logos unveiled are for the FUFA Uganda Cup Logo, FUFA Big League, FUFA Awards and FUFA Inter Regions-all high profile competitions run and organized by the federation.
‘All these logos have been registered as Trade Marks thus no one shall ever use them unless given permission’ added Magogo.
