Shirah Nakagwa the Club Licensing Manager and Emmauel Kazoora the IT Officer were invited by CAF to be trained as instructors for the next cycle. A total of 33 participants were selected by CAF from the different member Associations.
It was a three-day intense training workshop with in-depth focus on the CAF Club Licencing Framework, the CAF Club Licensing System, the regulations both men and women,the CAF Licensing Online Platform (CLOP) and we wrapped it up on the third day with examinations. CAF will base on that to select a group of instructors to who will be working with them on different missions to different member associations to impact the knowledge of Club Licensing.Shirah Nakagwa, Club Licensing Manager
Club licensing is key to the development of football in Africa because you can’t have competitive leagues without it.Shirah Nakagwa, Club Licensing Manager
As a person, the workshop impacted me with a lot of knowledge, and expertise, new opportunities were opened up, and I got to understand the CLOP, what is supposed to be done by the member association, in other words, every stakeholder in football. I will take it on to the different stakeholders through workshops so that they can understand what is to be done.Shirah Nakagwa, Club Licensing Manager
