The Federation of Uganda Football Association has been under immense pressure to pay international players for services offered to the national team in the past 33 months from July 2018 to March 2021. 

FUFA however confirmed through their social media how they have fulfilled their duty of paying the internationals the dues they were owed. 

“These payments are direct income by players and do not include any other expenses incurred on the team over the period. Please note that more players are paid by FUFA than listed here, these same players have earned from other FUFA sources but this is from the Government.”

The highest-paid player was former Cranes skipper and Mamelodi Sundowns custodian Denis Onyango, who received Ush320,617,500. Mike Mutyaba pocketed the lowest amount, Ush12,950,000. 

Uganda is now focusing on the 2022 World Cup qualifiers where they are pooled with fellow East Africans Kenya, Mali, and Rwanda in qualifying.

The first game will be against the Harambee Stars of Kenya in June on a date that is yet to be confirmed.
