The president of Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA), Eng. Moses Magogo has announced that FUFA will present a proposition to look for government support to help host the African Cup of Nations in 2025.
The president was addressing the press during a post-Afcon press conference on Wednesday morning at the FUFA house in Mengo – Kampala.
He also added that, when they were in Gabon, they really realized that Uganda has almost everything that is needed to host the Afcon competition.
“Uganda has much better facilities yet the main things we need are the stadiums which is the reason we are approaching the government.”
A country willing or bidding to have the continental showpiece must meet the least necessities which incorporate four standard stadiums with a capacity of about 20,000 fans.
Uganda presently has just a single international standard stadium – Namboole-which still requires a great renovation to meet the levels.
“FUFA just needs that government to help (building arena) and certainly if the decisions are taken, we might have the grounds ready in eight years’ time.”
Cameroon won offers to organize the 2019 finals, Ivory Coast for 2021, and Guinea in 2023.
