The Hat-trick: Magogo’s Key Areas of Focus Come Third Term

Moses Magogo will steer the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) for another four-year term, awaiting approval from the coming 97th FUFA Ordinary General Assembly.

Magogo was declared unopposed again by the Electoral Commission and will go into the Assembly in Mbale due August 21 needing 50%+1 of the votes.

He has hinted on the key areas his leadership will focus on in the four years when he starts work for the third term.

Magogo, while appearing on NTV Pressbox, said that there are “a lot of new things we are looking at to change the game.”

“Three simple goals, we are calling it the hat-trick.”

“One – Making football the professional end of the game. Generate revenues and make sure we can employ more Ugandans as athletes and as people working for football.

“Two – To make sure that we reach every homestead, the mass game.

“Three – Excellence while we are performing at the international level. The details will come out and we will share with the public so that they can demand that of us when the time comes.”

His second term has been met with mixed reviews, with his biggest undoing coming in form of a FIFA ban after he admitted to the resale of World Cup tickets.

The Uganda Cranes reached knockout at the 2019 AFCON but an ensuing players’ strike in Egypt due to unpaid arrears left many question marks.

The team failed to return to AFCON, the CHAN team were once again beaten at the group stages while the domestic clubs have as well continued to cry foul over various issues.

On the flip side of the coin, he will look to consolidate on the past achievements like the meteoric rise of Women and Youth Football.
