The President of the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA), Aleksander Ceferin, has arrived in Uganda.
Accompanied by the President of Slovenia Football Federation Radenko Mijatovic, Cefarin arrived last evening aboard Qatar Airways.
The UEFA team was received by State Minister for Sports Peter Ogwang; Asuman Basalirwa, the Chairperson of the Uganda Parliament football club; Ritah Aliguma, the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of The Aliguma Foundation; and others.
The team is later today set to play against the Parliament football team at St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende.
“I am happy to be in Uganda once again. Tomorrow (Monday, February 12, 2024) between 2 and 6 PM, we shall not be friends because it is match time. We want to win,” he said.
“I am excited to return to Uganda to visit the football projects and see the wonderful people,” he said.
“We welcome the President of UEFA, Aleksander Ceferin, back to Uganda. We appreciate his love for Uganda. We look forward to a successful visit, and I will personally organise a meeting for him with the First Lady, Janet Museveni. Feel free to tour the country,” Ogwanga said.
Tomorrow, the UEFA team will travel to Masindi at the Aliguma Empowerment Centre to commission a training football ground before jetting off on Wednesday.
