“It is a follow up meeting of the issue that has not been received well in certain circles but all will be solved, ” Fufa communications director Mr. Ahmed Hussein said.

“FUFA has fulfilled all requirements under the new guidelines from NCS by submitting the necessary documents.”


The Ministry of Education and Sports issued guidelines in April 2014 on registration of all National Sports Associations under Stattory Instrument No.38.

The regulations require the federation to register under trusteeship incorporation through the ministry of lands which Fufa and Fifa view as government interference. The act also bars the associations from registering as limited liability companies.

“FUFA has highlighted to NCS that registration for the local soccer governing body under the Trusteeship Act contravenes with the FIFA statutes. The laws of the country and FIFA Statutes will guide the meeting on understanding the current situation before FUFA completes registration,” Ahmed added.
