The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) is the governing body of football in Uganda. The association was founded in 1924 and became affiliated with FIFA in 1960 and the Confederation of African Football (CAF) in 1961.[2][3]

FUFA organises the men's and women's national football teams, and the first and second tiers of national football covering the Uganda Premier League also known as StarTimes Uganda Premier League and the FUFA Big League, respectively. The third tier (Regional Leagues) is organised by the regional football associations and the fourth tier (District Leagues / Fourth Division) are administered by the many district football associations. FUFA also organizes the Ugandan Cup, which is the oldest football competition of knockout format having started in 1971.


In 1924 the Kampala Football Association (KFA) was formed and in the 1950s became the Uganda Football Association (UFA). In 1967 the Uganda Football Association (UFA) was changed to the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA).[4]


FUFA is an association made up of 31 member associations and represented by 86 delegates at the Supreme Body called the FUFA General Assembly (GA). The member associations include:

The organisation is led by the FUFA Executive Committee (EXCOM) which is advised and supported by the FUFA Standing Committees, Judicial Bodies and Secretariat.[5]



Previous presidents are as follows:[6]


The president of FUFA is Moses Hassim Magogo who succeeded Lawrence Mulindwa in August 2013. Magogo is an electrical engineer by trade and has worked for the African Development Bank. Magogo was previously the Federation's Vice President, in charge of administration.

In 2000, while playing for Kinyara FC, Magogo started to actively participate in sports talk shows on radio. That platform endeared him to the public and by the time he was elected the FUFA delegate for Lubaga, Magogo had created a niche as one of the most knowledgeable persons about football management. FUFA subsequently appointed him to run the Super League.

Magogo is accredited for having transformed the league and football competition systems in Uganda and particularly the FUFA Big League and Regional Leagues. He is also responsible for starting the players contracting regulations and system in Uganda, negotiating and concluding the various sponsorships to football.[7][8] With an assertive nature he has been a central figure in administration wrangles.[9]

Regional organisations

Eight regional football associations administer the Regional Leagues covering the third tier of Ugandan football. Affiliated members includes Regional League clubs, schools football associations and cup competitions.[10][11]

Zones and district organisations

Below the regional football associations, FUFA has divided the country into 13 administrative zones, each of which encompass several district football associations. These local associations are affiliated to FUFA and manage grassroots affairs in their districts including the Fourth Division Leagues.
