The symposium will attract the cream of women football in Uganda

Although men’s football in the country has made big leaps, that has not been the case with women’s football. 

How to develop the game to reach greater heights among others will be some of the areas to be discussed at the FUFA Women Football Symposium slated for Wednesday at Kabira Country Club.

The need to develop female leaders and give opportunities to women in leadership positions in football will also be addressed as a crucial element of good governance. 

The symposium whose project manager is national team player Jean Sseninde will attract the cream of women football in Uganda. 

“Football is supported by very many stakeholders. We have carefully invited the people we believe have something about women football or they can drive the game,” stated Sseninde. 

Stakeholders like coaches, players, former national team players, government officials, corporates and FUFA executives will be part of the one-day symposium. 

The CAF head of women’s football development, Safia Abdel Dayem, and UEFA coaching instructor Hesterine De Reus will grace the symposium.

The symposium will also provide a forum to assess matters related to competitions and development, and explore how these two areas can be more closely linked and incorporated into an overall strategy to ensure success and to realise the global potential for women’s football.
