Tuesday, 29th March 2016

Uganda Vs Burkina Faso

Nelson Mandela National Stadium, Kampala, 7 p.m

Charges: 20,000/- (Ordinary), 50,000/- (VIP), 120,000/- (VVIP)


The President of the Republic of Uganda HE Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has extended financial assistance of UGX 300M as partial contribution towards Uganda Cranes for the two matches against Burkina Faso in the 2017 AFCON Qualifying campaign.

The support comes in as a timely boost to the National team which flew out of the country last night to Ouagadougou for Saturday’s qualifier before they return home for another fixture to complete the double header action against the same opponent.

Although there still a financial deficit of the budget for the two matches, the funds received will ease financial pressure but Government has promised to give more support to FUFA towards the two fixtures.

‘HE The President has keen interest and is a number one supporter of the Uganda Cranes. FUFA is extremely delighted for the timely support’ said FUFA President Eng. Moses Magogo

‘The financial support will galvanise our preparations.’ added Magogo.

Uganda Cranes tops Group D with six points. Government support towards the Uganda Cranes in the last two years has seen the team post very good results including back to back wins against Togo in the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia Qualifiers.

Discounted Tickets:

Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has introduced two hot lines upon which fans seeking ticket delivery at their different locations will be handled with utmost customer care.

The initiative which starts with the AFCON 2017 qualifier between Uganda Cranes and Burkina Faso is aimed at taking services closer to the fans whose work schedules can not allow them to go and purchase tickets during the international matches.

Fans will be at liberty to make calls for inquiries of the new ticket sales services.

This initiative also takes care of the money transfer services (Airtel Money & Mobile Money).

The numbers are;

Airtel Money: 0758-824209

Mobile Money: 0787-608104

FUFA Spokesperson Ahmed Hussein says; ‘We believe the fans will enjoy the service as this helps us get more closer to the fans’.

The services take immediate effect as tickets are already on the market.

Ordinary tickets go for 20,000/=, VIP tickets cost 50,000/= and VVIP tickets cost 120,000/= each.
