The Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) has long harboured plans of growing its headquarters and create more space.
With the current building in Mengo, along Wakaliga road no longer enough for the different departments of the local football governing body, the Federation thought it wise to make an extension.
On Thursday, Fufa confirmed on their official website that they have acquired land just adjacent to the current premises.
The land secured sits on 0.15 hectares with two buildings that will need renovation to create more office space according to head of the project, Justus Mugisha who is also the 1st Fufa Vice President.
“We procured space near FUFA House. It will help us create more space for the Secretariat staff. FIFA has played a key role in financing some of the Projects of its Member Associations. We shall make use of this project to serve the football family with improved service delivery,” said Mugisha.
The project will entirely be funded by FIFA through grants sent to different Football associations.
Uganda’s share of 5 billion shillings from FIFA is expected to be used to make an extension on the Fufa House plus more developments on the Fufa Technical centre in Njeru in the next four years.
Recently, Fufa President Eng.Moses Magogo also confirmed that the world football governing body agreed to fund two stadium projects that include Kadiba stadium in Mengo and a 20,000 state of the art seater stadium in Lugazi.
It should be noted that the current Fufa headquarters were also built through a FIFA grant in the early 2000s under the late David Obua’s reign.
