Fufa Seeks Government Backing to Host Afcon 2025

Magogo says Ugandan can host the AFCON come 2025

Fufa President Eng. Moses Magogo has revealed that the Federation will present a proposal to seek government support in a bid to host the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations.

Magogo was speaking to press during a post- Afcon press conference on Wednesday morning at the Fufa house in Mengo.

“When in Gabon, sales we actually realized we have almost everything that is required to host this competition,” Magogo said.

“We have much better facilities and services but the only thing we lack are the stadiums which is why we are calling on the government.”

A nation willing or bidding to host the continental showpiece must meet minimum requirements which include four standard stadiums with a capacity not less than 20,000 fans.

Uganda currently has only one international standard stadium -Namboole- which still requires a lot of works to meet the levels.

“Fufa only wants that government support (building stadia) and definitely if the decisions are taken, we shall have the grounds ready in eight years time.”

Cameroon won bids to stage the 2019 finals, Ivory Coast for 2021 and Guinea in 2023.
