Fufa Speaks Out on New Bank Account Controversy

Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has come out to clarify reasons why they opened a different account for Azam Pay TV to channel league sponsorship money directly to the federation.

Azam TV has previously been directing funds to the FSL account where the Chairman Hajji Abaas Kawase and FSL Secretary Richard Omongole are the only two signatories.

However Fufa reasons that the FSL Board has no mandate to operate business since their term of office has expired.

The federation further revealed that they withdrew the roles of FSL in the league.

“FUFA Executive Committee withdrew the roles as assigned to FSL in accordance with the FUFA Statues after FSL deviated from the football rules and regulations and also failing to pay for budgeted expenses, search cialis 40mg ” a statement from the federation reads in part.

At the beginning of the year, no rx FSL and FUFA entered into a contract with the Tanzanian Pay TV giant where the federation is entitled to 10 percent and USD 60,000 assigned for match day officiation.

The referees have only received half of that, some clubs also claim not to have received the money.

According to Fufa, those are the main reasons why they decided to open a new account.


“FUFA wrote to Azam asking them to deposit all broadcast revenue to the new bank account under the names of Uganda Premier League (UPL). This was meant to ensure that bonafide beneficiaries receive their monies duly.”

The account has only two signatories, the Uganda Premier League CEO Mr. Bernard Bainamani and FUFA CEO Edgar Watson.
