The North East region has several districts of Soroti, Ngora, Napak, Bukedea, Kaberamaido, Amuria, Katawi, Amolatar, Nakapiripirit, Serere, Kumi and Moroto.

FUFA Executive committee member from the region, Richard Ochom appreciated the great efforts of the federation towards developing the game in the region.

Standard fields:

The regional football chairman Stephen Onyait hinted on the availability of football grounds in the region many of which needed ungrading.


“We have so many playing fields but we call for a standard ground which will be accessed by all”, Onyait submitted.

Onyait’s due concerns were answered in flash when the President pledged support for the region towards the accomplishment of that goal.

Football the Beautiful Game:

“Football is a beautiful game which must make us happy and bring us together”, Magogo said in his opening remarks.

He expressed delight about the level of the game’s development process in the region particularly in Nepak and Moroto areas.

Urging unity as a primary key point in the development process, he reinstated the need of all the region’s delegates to work as a unit than individuals.

“It becomes difficult if the delegates are not friends .I can’t generate a good football product for you if you are at logger heads”, Magogo who was marking his first time in the region added.

Operational North East Regional league:

A fully active running regional league is one aspect the president appreciated and called for more activeness from all stakeholders.

“The powers to run football at lower levels and in the regions is now entirely on regional football associations including the appointment of referees. I am happy for the league here. Fufa will give support to the regional football associations”, he remarked.
