FUFA President Moses Magogo has attributed Express FC’s recent success on FUFA’s Club Pro Agenda.
Magogo who made the remarks during Express FC’s League crowning ceremony, reechoed his claims that the Red Eagles CEO Isaac Mwesigwa is the most empowered Chief Executive in the league.
The Clubs Pro Agenda was initiated by FUFA to re-engineer the teams’ sporting and business processes as the Federation moved to ensure professionalism of the local competitions.
The program also guides and prepares the clubs during club licensing exercise that helps assess and grade clubs beyond sporting merit.
“I take this moment to congratulate Express FC,” Magogo stated in his remarks at an event held at StarTimes offices.
“I am excited that our programs of the clubs Pro agenda are eventually turning to deliver, football on and off the pitch.
“Sometime those that have been following in the season, I went on record and said that the CEO of Express FC is the most empowered CEO in the league. I am not surprised that they are champions.”
Express were scientifically crowned champions in a low key event at the league sponsor’s home.
“We thank starTimes in these trying times, everybody was affected by the pandemic but they have been able to fulfill.
“I also take the opportunity to inform the football lovers in this country where as there are still many problems regarding financing clubs, but the StarTimes deal we have is the biggest deal in terms of cash growing football in the country.”
Magogo also revealed why Vipers are yet to receive their league title they won in the 2019/20 season.
He stated: “Putting records straight, last year the Champions of the previous season were offered an opportunity to be handed over the trophy, starTimes and FUFA were ready but the club was not ready to receive the trophy.
“This year both startimes and FUFA as well as the club we were ready and that is why this has happened.”
