FUFA President Hon. Magogo Moses Hassim.

FUFA has received Uganda Shillings 2 Billion from the Government of Uganda.

This is part of arrears to assist in preparations for Uganda Cranes squad ahead of the CHAN finals in Algeria.

Part of the funds will also help in settlement of arrears accrued as a result of the team’s earlier international engagements.

Earlier the Federation of Uganda Football Association had announced Uganda Crane’s withdrawal from the tournament due to financial constraints.

However this was later resolved after getting funds to cater for the tournament.

It should be noted that the Federation of Uganda Football Association is allocated Uganda Shillings 17 Billion in the annual National Budget but only UGX 4.8 Billion has been disbursed.

“I thank the Government of Uganda led by HE President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni , First Lady and Minister of Education and Sports Mama Janet Museveni, Parliament of Uganda, Ministry of Finance, Minister of State for Sports Hon. Peter Ogwang, National Council of Sports and various Government organs for playing a key role in the release of the funds” noted the FUFA President Hon. Magogo Moses Hassim.

“We are glad to receive this timely support from the Government as the Uganda Cranes CHAN Squad is already in camp preparing for CHAN Finals due next month in Algeria” Magogo added.

The Cranes fly out on 1st January 2023 for build up matches in Tunisia before connecting to Algeria.
