FUFA is seeking compensation of close to sh50m from the Kenya soccer body following their withdrawal from the second leg of the final All Africa Games qualifier.

FUFA was preparing to host Kenya’s U-23 team at Namboole tomorrow. Coach Robert Williamson yesterday called off the Uganda team’s training and continental governing body, CAF, has officially communicated to FUFA about Kenya’s withdrawal.

Kenya Football Limited (KFL) opted to pull out following a 5-1 rout of the Kenyans by Uganda in the first leg in Nairobi.

FUFA chief executive Edgar Watson and vice president Finance Anthony Kimuli said yesterday that they had spent in preparations for the game and it is only fair to recover the costs.

The Ugandans a refund for four match officials’ air tickets of $4000 (10.5m), hotel accommodation for the visitors at sh19.4m and sh15m for preparing the Kobs, who had camped at Namboole.

“We hoped to recover the expenses from gate collections for the match. Now that is not possible with their withdrawal. With the current financial situation it is only fair to ask KFL to meet those costs,” Kimuli said.
