Moses Magogo will stand again as president of the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA).
The development was confirmed by Magogo himself during the media inter-face with journalists at Jevine Hotel in Rubaga, Kampala on Tuesday, April 6, 2021.
I will stand again as President of FUFA. I want to consolidate the gains worked upon since 2013 when I came to office. I also want to see Uganda Cranes qualify for the FIFA World Cup.
Also a newly elected member of parliament for Budiope East, many people have been wondering how Magogo would carry on the mantle for the two dockets.
“I know how to programme and balance my time. In fact, football should celebrate being an MP as we need to discuss football matters in the national parliament,” he explained.
Magogo also hinted about the good relationship that football should bridge with the central Government.
“There are four things we as football people need from Government; First is the law, infrastructure, funding and policies,” added Magogo, who also serves as a CAF Executive Committee member.
Magogo’s current term of office will officially expire on 31st August 2021.
This is the second term since coming into office in 2013.
Magogo succeeded Lawrence Mulindwa who had served for eight years in office.
Key of Magogo’s achievements at the helm of FUFA presidency was restoration of sanity in the game’s administration from divisionism and in-fighting.
He has also worked to clean the image of the beautiful game and was able to lure more sponsors on board, increased competitions like Women Elite, Women Super League, Beach Soccer, Odilo (U-15 League), FUFA Drum (Inter-Provinces) and others.
Uganda Cranes qualification to two successive AFCON finals in 2017 and 2019 is also another milestone for FUFA as well as other junior competitions (CECAFA U-15, U-17 and U-20).
Meanwhile, the complete procedure of the FUFA electoral process is already underway.
