There are less than three months to the long-awaited FUFA Elections and the atmosphere is steadily garnering steam.

These elections will be the core of the agenda at the 97th FUFA Ordinary General Assembly on 21st August 2021 in Mbale, hosted by the Eastern Region Football Association as confirmed by the 24th FUFA Executive Committee meeting.

The incumbent president of the Federation of Uganda Football Associations Moses Hassim Magogo openly expressed interest to seek re-election for another term in office since 2013.

To this effect, Magogo is among the three aspiring candidates who picked the nomination forms with the return date set for Wednesday, 26th May 2021 at the FUFA headquarters in Mengo.

Magogo has been FUFA President since 2013 when he took over from Lawrence Mulindwa.

He is also the newly elected Member of Parliament for Budiope West County in the Busoga region.

“We seek to consolidate on the gains worked upon in the previous years. There is a foundation that has been laid and we wish to add onto the gains worked thus far” Magogo told the media moments after picking the nomination forms.
