Uganda: Fufa Pleads for Women
« on: February 09, 2007, 08:59:50 AM »
SOCCER governing body, FUFA has urged school teachers to support the development of the women's game.

The federation vice-president in charge of women Florence Nkalubo made the plea while giving out 70 footballs to primary schools teachers from around Kampala.

The function took place at FUFA headquarters in Mengo yesterday.

Nkalubo and FUFA CEO Charles Masembe said that the future of women football depended on primary school girls.

"We believe the future is feminine and it is up to us to make it work out. We have just started and there is a lot in the offing for women football," Nkalubo urged.

Masembe said that the gesture was in line with FUFA's commitment for the year 2007 to the development of youth and women football.Relevant Links

Front Page Microfinance officials, who belatedly delivered a first aid kit for the U-23 team, promised to dress women teams.

"We are happy FUFA has given us room to share football development with them. We don't want to duplicate by giving the women more balls but we are adjusting our budget and shall give them uniforms," Front Page PRO Henry Watira said.

The institution gave the U-23 team tracksuits and fruits worth sh1.2m.
