Ugandan Clubs want share of FIFA grants

flag.gifNEWLY elected Super Division Clubs Association chairman Godfrey Kisekka has promised to lobby FUFA(Federation of Uganda Football Associations) to allocate part of the annual $250,000 grant from soccer governing body FIFA, to support his members.

Kisekka, who was elected to the clubs’ top job after serving it for nine years as secretary and vice-chairman, argued that FUFA does little to support the association.

“We all know that our clubs are the backbone of the national teams but when our players get injured at national engagements, we are required to treat them without any help from FUFA,” he argued.

Kisekka was elected unopposed during the associations’ general assembly at FUFA House yesterday.

The KCC interim chairman has been deputy to Col. Jackson Tushabe of Victors club.

Villa secretary Edward Luyimbazi Mugalu beat Mbale Heroes’ Moses Twalla by 20-9 votes for the vice-chairman’s seat.

Acting commissioner for sports in the ministry of education and sports and chairman of Boroboro football club Omara Apita beat Police’s Livingstone Lajan in the vote for secretary.

Newly instituted Express interim committee members were locked out because they aren’t yet recognised by SDCA. Masaka did not show up.
