FUFA set to defy NCS, calls new rules archaic

first_imgUOC president Blick (left), FUFA VP Mbidde (middle) and Magogo (right) at the press briefing on Thursday. PHOTO BY FUFASoccer governing body FUFA insist they will defy new regulations for them to register with National Council of Sports NCS.FUFA president Moses Magogo told the press on Thursday that not only are the rules useless in the effort to move sport forward, but some clash with statutes of their international soccer governing body FIFA. He instead called for dialogue to resolve the impasse, following an ultimatum of June 30 to comply.“The new laws are old and useless since they don’t solve the problems of sports industry. From 1964 to 2014, we haven’t attributed our successes in sports to regulations. Sports activity is a dynamic industry that will require amendments in regulation,” Magogo said Thursday.“We have fulfilled 99% of the new guidelines and failed to consent towards a clause regarding trustee. We told NCS from the start of this exercise that there would be a flaw with FIFA  Statutes if we registered as a Trustee. We have contacted NCS for audience but they have refused to get back to us.”Magogo told the press at the Uganda Olympics Committee offices that focus should be on amendments of the NCS ACT that governs Uganda sport. “We asked for an extended time to October 31 so that we could have a general assembly according to FIFA’s statutes, however to our dismay, there was no response to our matter.”Out of 50 associations, only 17 are nationally recognised by NCS as sports associations and new regulations the body set last year. “We are at a time when Uganda Cranes is preparing for an AFCON qualifier against Botswana next weekend and instead of looking for the over sh800m needed for the fixture – NCS is not contributing anything to this – here I am discussing issues that are meant to destroy sport in this country.  Instead, just yesterday I got a letter telling me of a 30th June 2016 deadline.”Uganda Table Tennis Association (UTTA) president Robert Jjagwe was saddened by what he called the “antagonistic nature and conduct of NCS.” He added that “NCS interference is detrimental to the game and sport activities.”However NCS General Secretary Nicholas Muramagi says FUFA have had enough time to prepare themselves to meet the new regulations and register.“We don’t consider it a registered national association. They should fulfill the guidelines, register at a fee and thereafter acquire a certificate of recognition.”Uganda Olympic Committee (UOC) president William Blick advised NCS to engage federations. “International laws are very important and help govern sport from an international perspective. I am afraid if  NCS stick to their guns national sports federations are going to have problems and I do not  want to see this happen. I therefore urge members to sit down and talk.”Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more
