The Federation of Uganda Football Association ( FUFA) has confirmed that Uganda’s AFCON 2023 group F qualification game against Algeria will be played in Cameroon.
This is because of the unavailability of Madela National Stadium in Namboole after the country wasnt submitted by 25th March, the deadline CAF set to for Stadium submission.
This is going to be a second Uganda Cranes game hosted away from home after also the Tanzanian game was hosted in Egypt.
“I call upon the relevant government authorities to urgently cancel the contracts of the contractors and supervisors and immediately procure experienced service providers in stadium construction even if it means being obtained from outside Uganda. The country is likey to have a delayed project, substandard work and without value for money.” Said FUFA President Moses Magogo after the development.
Uganda is currently second in group F and will need to finish in the top two places to qualify for the finals in Ivory Coast next year.
