As the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) continues with consultations regarding the proposed FUFA reforms, we spoke to Police FC Chairman Asan Kasingye and KCCA FC boss Mike Mutebi to seek their opinions.
Like many football stakeholders we have spoken to, KCCA FC Manager Mike Mutebi is in support of the formation of the reserve league but showed concerns over the mandatory under 17 team for big league clubs and the reduction of the top-flight clubs.
Mutebi suggests that the federation should maintain the 16 teams in the StarTimes Uganda premier league but should be more strict on meeting licensing regulations.
Police FC Chairman AIGP Asan Kasingye says his team has not been consulted at all about the reforms and therefore suggests a more involving approach by the federation.
Part of the intended goals of the proposed FUFA reforms is the professionalizing of the country’s top two leagues and decentralizing under 17 football so that more young kids are allowed to compete.
