Change of names by clubs
In a bid to keep promoting football at the grass roots and encourage identity of clubs with the local communities, the FUFA Executive received proposals from the Competitions Committee on change of clubs’ names;
- Kabale Sharp FC (Western region FA, Kabale) has been granted permission to change name to Kigezi Home Boys FC
- Nkambi Coffee FC (Buganda Region FA, Masaka) has been granted permission to change name to Masaka City Sports Club
- Three Clubs Kagadi Eagles FC, Kahunde FC and Digital FC (Kitara Region FA) have been granted permission to play under one name Kagadi United FC.
- Mukura Town Council (North East Region FA, Ngora) was granted permission to change name to Basere FC
However a request by Eastland FC (North East Region FA, in Bukedea) to change name to Lifeline FC was rejected by the FUFA Executive.
FUFA grants Provisional Licenses to CAF C Coaches
The FUFA Executive noted that there has been a genuine delay by authorities concerned to release results of the coaches who attended the CAF C coaching course three years ago but have not been able to enroll for the CAF B course for reasons beyond their control.
With this deficiency, FUFA has granted provisional Licenses to coaches who fall in this category as they wait for full release of results by CAF.
However upon release of results, the successful CAF C coaches will be required to apply to undertake immediately a CAF B course to attain the minimum requirements for any coach to sit on the technical bench in the Uganda Premier League this season.
