The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has rewarded the gallant Cranes players with USD 20.000 (over UG Shs.50m) from the prize money they won after lifting this year’s Cecafa Tusker Challenge Cup on Saturday.
FUFA vice President in charge of Technical matters Livingstone Kyambadde who also led the delegation handed over the money to the players after consultations with the FA president Lawrence Mulindwa. Uganda won her 12th Cecafa title after eliminating Rwanda 3-2 on spot kicks.
Kyambadde hailed the boys for the good fighting spirit exhibited throughout the tournament and commended the head coach Bobby Williamson for winning his third Cecafa title.
Meanwhile midfielder Mudde Musa returned to Nairobi this morning while Mike Sserumaga, Sula Matovu, Robert Odongokara and Isaac Isinde are scheduled to connect direct to Addis Ababa from Dar es Salaam this Sunday.
Cecafa General Secretary Nicholas Musonye said the next challenge cup could go to Nairobi in 2012 following Kenya’s interest to host it. The hosts of the club championship would be decided after the consultative meetings with the sponsors.
