In his key note address to the media about the launch of the 2015 Nations cup group stage campaign during today’s press conference at FUFA House, Eng Moses Magogo said that ‘According to our plans and belief for journey to Morocco, it is a mission possible’

The FUFA President was flanked by the federation’s chairman Legal Committee Alex Luganda, spokesperson Ahmed Hussein, Finance Director Decolas Kiiza, Competitions manager Ali Mwebe and Cranes coach Miultin ‘Micho; Sredojevic.

He made appeals to the public and various stakeholders seeking support towards football in Uganda.

Magogo thanked individuals and institutions for their support through the preliminary stage of the 2015 Nations cup qualifiers that saw Uganda Cranes win three out of four games against Madagascar and Mauritania.

It is unprecedented to have eight (8) matches in three months. It is unusual as our dream to qualify for the finals will be determined in just three months’ said Magogo.

He added ‘No star player, No star President. No star coach can achieve this dream without support’

FUFA needs support from every Ugandan.

‘If every Ugandan gives in their support on what we are planning, we shall be able to achieve our dreams’ remarked Magogo.

The leader of Ugandan football also called upon the clubs, administrators, players, fans and the media to give total support to the two national teams-Uganda Cranes and Uganda Cubs (U17) who will play four matches in a space of 22 days starting 5th September, 2014.

Magogo thanked the government for the support they have given to the federation, security, religious groups, media, fans, sponsors Airtel, NIC and Nile Breweries.

‘We have already engaged the government and we are hopeful of a god response’ said Magogo as he told the media.

He urged the media to condemn the negative energy by some people geared at undermining the work of the federation and football at large.

The president also said that the fans can play a key role in improving on the federation’s revenue by paying to watch home games and buying Cranes replica kits.

‘There is a reason why Cranes never loses at home. The reason is the 12th player-fans’ said Magogo.
