FIFA boss Gianni Infantino will meet President Yoweri Museveni at State House, Entebbe upon arrival on Friday evening before a half-day engagement with other football stakeholders on Saturday.

According to FUFA president, Moses Magogo, Infantino's 18 hour visit to Uganda is expected to change the image of his administration and football in Uganda.

He is expected to discuss Ugandan football development with the FUFA executive committee and high ranking government officials in a breakfast meeting at Serena Hotel in Kampala on Saturday.

Infantino will then meet FUFA delegates, regional chairmen and football sponsors in the country at Hotel Africana.

Before he briefly watches an U17 football match between KCCA FC and Lweza at Phillip Omondi Stadium in Lugogo, Infantino will interact with selected current and retired FIFA referees and Uganda Cranes players.

Although Infantino's visit is supposed to involve inspection of FIFA projects in Uganda, he will not reach the FUFA Technical Centre in Njeru due to his tight schedule.

But he will perform a ground-breaking ceremony at Kadiba Grounds where FIFA is helping Uganda establish a football centre for the youth in Uganda before featuring on a show on FUFA Radio.

He will conclude his visit by addressing the media at Ivys Hotel at around midday.

Infantino who came in office last year is touring Africa to share ideas on football development projects.

From the FIFA Executive Summit in Doha, Qatar last week, Infantino has been to South Africa and is in Zimbabwe from where he head to Rwanda on Thursday.

Infantino will be the first FIFA president to visit Uganda.
