The Federation CEO, Edgar Watson said the pull out has been confirmed to CAF and subsequently communicated to all the concerned parties including Ghana and the match officials.

Uganda was slated to host Ghana on the weekend of 6-8 December 2013 before the return leg a fortnight later.

“Having assessed that the new trend required to have substantial funds to prepare and organize for both the home and away matches against Ghana (and Equatorial Guinea or Zambia in case of qualification to the next round within a period of only seven weeks), FUFA could not commit the funds at the expense of other women football activities scheduled on the football calendar year,” said Watson.

“The focus henceforth is drawn towards using the available resources to get involved in activities that would engage more girls’ participation in women football within the country. The Federation Technical Director and the line standing committee are in charge of the priorities in this regard.”
