Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has confirmed that they will hold a get together of former and current leaders next month.
The meeting will be held under the FUFA President’s Initiative on 28th August 2018 at Imperial Royale aimed at engaging, sharing ideas and seeking counsel from the elders.
Founded in 1924, FUFA remains the strongest sports body in Uganda and has enjoyed a steady growth with sporting results attained over the period of its existence.
The FUFA Communications Manager Ahmed Hussein highlighted the importance of the reunion between the current Leadership of FUFA and its former leaders.
“The rise and excellence of football in Uganda today is mainly attributed to the hard work and commitment exhibited by the leaders of the Federation over the years.
“The endless efforts and contribution by the former and current leaders towards the development of the game is very valuable,” noted Hussein on the FUFA website.
“In light of this, we have come up with the FUFA President’s Initiative to engage, share ideas and seek counsel from the former leaders through a get together session.
“The FUFA President recognises the former leaders as key figures in FUFA’s administration and having played a key role in developing the game,” added Hussein, a former sports journalist, who also witnessed the growth of the game under some of the past leaders.
Moses Hassim Magogo is the current FUFA president.
