Eng. Moses Magogo hinted on the significance of the interface and FUFA’s progress since 2013 when he took over office, highlighting the success story in the eight (8) focus areas of FUFA.

“We thought it was very important to have an engagement with the media. We are open-minded. Since 2013, the game of football was still in recovery. By the time we came into administration, the game had moved to the point of take-off. For instance in 2013, there were only 8 employees of FUFA. Today, there are 60 employees. The national teams have improved a lot. There is a lot of improvement on quality of the human resource, communication and governance issues. The financial resources have increased from Shs 4 billion to over Shs 40 billion now. There is improved relationship with Government. No existing administration can operate without the Government. We need Government, there is a lot that we need from Government; CAF and FIFA, Uganda Olympic Committee, National Council of Sports (NCS), media and everybody working for the well being of football. Football needs an environment to develop” noted Eng. Moses Magogo.
