FIFA have confirmed that a two-man delegation from Zurich will travel to Uganda for a meeting with the Ministry of Education and Sports over the registration of FUFA under the new Sports regulations by National Council of Sports.
Mr. Luca Nicola (Manager Member Associations) and Mr. Rolf Tanner (Legal Counsel) will arrive on Monday morning for the meeting to be held on Tuesday 12th July, 2016.
The meeting will be held at the offices of the Ministry of Education and Sports.
“Details in relation to the meeting on Tuesday will be released to the parties involved in time. It is a follow up meeting of the issue that has not been received well in certain circles but all will be solved. FUFA has fulfilled all requirements under the new guidelines from NCS by submitting the necessary documents,” said FUFA Communications Manager Ahmed Hussein.
The laws of the country and FIFA Statutes will guide the meeting on understanding the current situation before FUFA completes its registration under the new sports guidelines.
FUFA has highlighted to NCS that registration for the local soccer governing body under the Trusteeship Act contravenes with the FIFA statutes.
