President of the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA), Eng. Moses Magogo has said his regime has improved the image of the sport.
“Since we were elected in 2013 we have turned this sport around and attracted more sponsors because of the better image,” Magogo told AfricaFootball.com in an interview before traveling in Manama, Bharain ahead of the Fifa Congress.
Magogo explained that his regime has managed to bring in many companies to support the national team and also to support their youth programmes. “We need another 4-year term to accomplish some of the set out objectives to get football to even a better standard,” he added.
He also said he is confident he will be re-elected for a second term when the polls take place August 5th in Masindi. “What I have done speaks volumes and I am sure the delegates will give me another mandate to take the sport to another level,” said the confident Magogo who added that he is among the most best qualified people to manage football in the country.
Magogo, who is also a CAF and FIFA instructor said that since he is a very important resource to Uganda and world football, it will be important that he is voted back so that he can serve and work hard to develop the sport.
During his reign Uganda qualified for the 2014 and 2016 Africa Nations Championships and also broke the 39-year jinx to qualify for the 2017 Total Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon).
Presidential candidates for the Uganda FA candidates will be nominated at the committee's secretariat at FUFA House on June 10. Only the incumbent Magogo has declared interest to contest the office for a second term.
