After successfully qualifying to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, Fufa has now set eyes on the Uganda Cranes first appearance at the Fifa world cup.
The federation unveiled their new project code-named #projectFifaWorldCup2026 on Wednesday just a day after the Uganda Cranes returned from Cairo. The Cranes were eliminated from the round of 16 by Senegal.
The federation’s president, Moses Magogo, said that they will direct all their energies towards guiding the team to the global showpiece coming up seven years from now.
“We mark the end of the Project Cameroon project that we launched on 24th November 2014. It has been a realistic project with many positives and definitely crucial learning experiences,” Magogo said.
He introduced the new project: “We are also launching the FIFA World Cup 2026 Project. We shall remain competing in the qualifiers for all the Junior and senior team competitions in between as we prepare the
team for the set goal.
To be more specific, the were are looking at CHAN 2020, 2022, 2024 and 2026, AFCON 2021, 2023 and 2025.”
The 2026 World Cup will be held jointly by the United States of America, Canada, and Mexico.
