In a unique show of generosity, the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) continues to network among key parties, stakeholders and âpartners in crimeâ.
On Monday, May 27, 2019, FUFA donated 10 quality soccer balls to the management of St Henry’s College Kitovu in Masaka.
The balls were officially handed over to the school principal, Brother Augustine Mugabo, by the financial director of FUFA, Decolas Kiiza, flanked by the deputy director general, Humphrey Mandu.
Brother Mugabo, expressing his shock at the donation, praised FUFA for the gesture.
I hosted the FUFA officials in Kitovu in Masaka ahead of the Uganda Cup final last Friday. I also promised to make a courtesy call. Here I am and received the balls, 10 quality balls to bring to the players. I’m very grateful. I was shocked that in FUFA there was a well coordinated system and I was surprised to learn that there was even a radio station. Now I can say that Uganda Cranes’ back-to-back qualification was not by accident, but rather planned. Please let us all support FUFA to develop Ugandan football and restore the lost glory.

For starters, St Henry’s College Kitovu is among the country’s staunch Catholic schools with a rich niche for sports, especially football.
In fact, given this solid background, St Henry’s College, Kitovu is one of the eight schools of excellence selected by the federation to develop the beautiful game from the ground up.
This year, the school made a big comeback at the national copa coca football championships held in Jinja, qualifying after the grueling group stages, but only lost in the quarter-finals to future winners, St Mary’s SS Kitende 2-0 at Kakindu Stadium.
With the academically strong and talented athlete scholarship policy restored to the school, they are destined for the best future times to come.
