FUFA Technical Master Plan Launched (2023-2030)

The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) unveiled the Technical Master Plan during an evening event held at the Imperial Royale Hotel, Kampala, on Tuesday, 17th October 2023.

The event was attended by the Historical FUFA President, Hon. Magogo Moses Hassim, members of the FUFA executive committee, FUFA Delegates, Coaches, former players, and members of the media.

While making the opening remarks, the Deputy CEO in charge of Football, Decolas Kiiza, who represented the FUFA CEO Edgar Watson, emphasised the timeliness of the instrument.

“The Technical Master Plan is very important for several reasons. It is the starting point for our deserved triumph in football,” he said.

Ronnie Kalema, the FUFA Executive Committee Member in charge of Football Development, told the audience that the gathering is a result of an assignment completed and documented to be used for the next seven years. He also thanked the team that worked tirelessly to see it come to life.

The Historical FUFA President, Hon. Magogo Moses Hassim, reminded the audience that football is a trinity that consists of money, governance, and sport.

“My administration has excelled in governance and also shown that football can generate money. With the executive, the plan now is to deliver in the sport,” the Historical FUFA President said.

“I want to assure you that the moment is now,” he added.

The President told the audience that what has been delivered is in reference to what FIFA recommends.

“Whatever we have done in this Technical Master Plan was done with reference to FIFA,” he said.

The Special Presidential Assistant for Education and Sports, Karl Gunter Lange, was impressed by the preview of the document that Ali Mwebe, the Football Development Director, presented.

“Congratulations upon this launch. I haven’t read the document, but the preview given by Ali Mwebe is impressive,” he said.

The Guest of Honour at the launch and also Assistant General Secretary at the National Council of Sports, David Katende Semakula, thanked the Federation leadership for transforming the game over the years and believes this is a step in the right direction.

“Congratulations FUFA upon this milestone. This is a move in the right direction,” he said.

“The application of sports science knowledge is the trend today. We cannot do the same things and have better results. What we are doing today is developing a pathway. As government and NCS, it is our hope that it will deliver us to our intended goals. We look forward to its implementation,” he added.

“FUFA beats all other national federations in two things, governance and managing the sport from a modern perspective. This is another significant step, and I hope other federations will adopt it,” he concluded.

The launch follows a process of internal formulation and external stakeholders’ Symposium held on 3rd July 2023 at the FUFA Technical Centre, Njeru.

The FUFA Executive approved the Technical Master Plan on 31st August 2023 and it was presented to the FUFA Assembly on 7th October 2023.
