Mulindwa said that while he appreciates the concerns of football fans on the high charges, the actual figure that will go to Fufa after making all the deductions was “still small.”

The Fufa marketing and sponsorship committee on September 20 announced the charges as being Shs40,000, 75,000 and 120,000 for the ordinary, VIP and gold class tickets respectively.

“18% (Shs7,200 from each of the Shs40,000 charged ticket) returns to government coffers in form of Value Added Taxes (VAT),” he said.

“Also, unlike other national events, Shs70m will cater for police expenses to guarantee the security of fans and their property.”

Mulindwa also explained that Namboole Stadium wants Shs3,000 charged on each ticket, and that other expenses including air tickets for players, allowances and accomodation of match officials are to be covered by the federation.

Uganda need to beat Zambia by a two-goal margin on October 13 at Namboole to qualify for the finals in South Africa next year.
