The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) Executive Committee has approved funding for CAF Club Competitions representatives.
KCCA FC and Proline FC have been entered to represent Uganda in the CAF Club tournaments this season. KCCA FC won the StarTimes Uganda Premier League title and will thus feature in the CAF Champions League while Proline FC lifted the Stanbic Uganda Cup to take the berth in the CAF Confederation cup.
The latest development has been confirmed by FUFA Finance Director Decolas Kiiza who says guidelines will be followed to benefit from the decision taken by the FUFA Executive.
‘FUFA has made strides as a result of increased Government funding for the Uganda Cranes activities. We now have resources for other football activities and stakeholders to develop the game of football in Uganda’ said Kiiza
The following guidelines will be followed by the two clubs:-
FUFA shall assume the expenses of travel by plane and allowances for the Leader of Delegation.
FUFA shall assume the expenses of travel by plane in economy class of the participating team for a maximum of 25 persons (18 players and 7 officials) from Entebbe to the Airport of the host Country within the provisions of the relevant Competition regulations.
