The Federation of Ugandan Football boss Moses Magogo has hailed Kampala Capital City Authority’s CAF Champions League win over Ethiopia’s Saint George.
KCCA beat St George 1-0 on Saturday after Muhammad Shaban's header in the second half to make it to the lucrative 16-team stage.
Magogo has described his feeling as super excited, saying the win has enhanced their continental experience as a country.
“This has enhanced our case of asking for the 3rd slot for clubs to represent Uganda on the Continent,” he said.
“The fans, players, coaches and management are getting continental experience which will rub off in the UPL.
“The money that comes into KCCA FC is football money which will trickle down to Ugandan football beyond KCCA FC.”
KCCA's progress will also earn FUFA an extra Shs101m and according to the CAF prize money distribution rules, FUFA is entitled to a share of the revenue.
CAF has announced that the national federation will receive an additional share of 5% of the amount awarded to clubs who reach the group stages.
