Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) is preaching decentralization of the game for better planning, accountability as well as easy monitoring of its fiscal policies and programmes.

Humphrey Mandu, the FUFA Deputy Chief Executive Officer (CEO) officiated at the closing ceremony, urging the participants to apply the studied theories into real practical football situations.
The FUFA President started the initiative of transforming the game of football and this can be done through inductions like this to our new members of staff. By asking participants to act as ambassadors and corporate with those who have no idea yet within their respective regions by tempting them to attend courses and also appreciate the value of football education and what it brings thereafterI call upon you to put into practice what you have learnt because it is very dangerous to sit on the knowledge you have acquiredHumphrey Mandu, FUFA Deputy CEO
