NATIONAL soccer federation FUFA will starting today open regional centres across the country.
â€œIt has taken long to implement the pledge but at last we have got some funds to set the offices project started in the five regions,â€ said FUFA media committee boss Rogers Mulindwa yesterday.
He said the first centre to open will be in Mbarara for western region, before they move to eastern, northern, Buganda and end with Kampala office.
â€œThe federation will equip the centres with furniture, a computer connected to internet, fax machine, telephone and a fully paid administrator,â€ added Mulindwa.
Meanwhile, FUFA has said they are willing to cooperate with Mujib Kasule who dragged the federation to court. FUFA says it is in the interest of football to work with Kasule.
â€œThe court battle is over and what we should now focus on is football development. Kasule is a good person but being used by disruptive forces. We are ready to work with him,â€ said Mulindwa,
In another development, the FUFA returning officer will next week publish names of candidates seeking to contest in the December FUFA elections.
Brazilâ€™s deputy ambassador to Uganda Adam Jayme Muniz yesterday said they were ready to help African countries improve their game.
â€œThat is where we are heading to. We have similar projects with other countries,â€ Muniz said adding that they are drawing a programme to ensure the project succeeds. Muniz was addressing the press at FUFA House.
