Uganda has joined Rwanda as the second CECAFA member country to sign binding agreements with the Morocco Football Association in areas of technical.
The development happened on Thursday when the FUFA President, Moses Magogo met with his counterpart from Morocco Lekjaa Fouzi and sealed off the deal.
An overwhelmed Magogo, as quoted by the FUFA website said;
FUFA’s strategy is to create as many partnerships and relationships as possible for the betterment of our game.
It is another milestone to have the Federal Republic of Morocco Football Association as our development partners and I am definitely excited.
Our next move with this partnership is to take a delegation of football stakeholders to Morocco to understand how Government, Federation and Corporate sponsors are undertaking massive infrastructure development.
It is amazing work going on in Morocco
Partnership nitty gritty:
This partnership includes exchange programmes of technical and administrative staff, hosting of national and club teams from either country by the other, training camps, sharing football knowledge, best practices and experiences.
Uganda will definitely borrow a leaf from the way football is managed in the Magreb region country.
In June 2016, Rwanda Football federation signed a similar agreement which culminated into a visit of the Rwanda technical officials and the entire U-20 team to the North African country.
The Uganda – Morocco partnership is the first in the regime of Magogo as FUFA boss in the 4 year epoch since he took over Lawrence Mulindwa in 2012.
Magogo has already indicated he will seek re-election for another term in office in the upcoming FUFA polls.
