Uganda Lacks Certified Football Stadiums To Host International Matches: Official


Uganda lacks certified football stadiums to host international matches: official

KAMPALA, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 17th Apr, 2024) The President of the Federation of Uganda Football Federations (FUFA) has revealed that the country currently has no certified stadiums to host international matches.

Moses Hassim Magogo, who is also the Member of Parliament for Budiope East in Buyende District, told the Ugandan parliament on Tuesday that the Confederation of African Football (CAF) has not certified both the Namboole National Stadium and Nakivubo Stadium to stage international matches.

"When CAF conducted the inspection, it was found impractical for a football match to take place in the Namboole stadium because of the incomplete works," disclosed Magogo.

"Also, the reconstructed Nakivubo Stadium by a private businessman does not meet certain requirements, and CAF's inspection says it cannot host an international match.

"Our appeal to CAF is to exercise its executive power and allow us to complete the necessary work, conduct another inspection, thus giving us a chance to host our games at home in June," Magogo noted.

CAF has outlined several areas for improvement at the Namboole National Stadium, including enhancements to the lighting, technical bench, media tribunal, dressing rooms, and the stadium clock.
