Having no CAF-certified stadium in the country at the moment, Uganda Cranes will host it’s next game against Algeria in Cameroon.
While addressing the press, the FUFA president confirmed that although the Minister of Sports told them that Mandela National Stadium would be ready at that time, as the FUFA Executive Committee they have decided that the next game against Algeria will be hosted in Cameroon.
The State Minister for Sports, Peter Ogwang last month apologized to the public for failing to renovate the stadium on time for the AFCON qualifiers but promised the first phase would be ready for the next game against Algeria.
“We are going to work hard as much as possible to have our next home game scheduled for 12th June played here in Namboole,” Ogwang said.
However, the FUFA president on Tuesday said a routine inspection of the ongoing works on the stadium on Monday indicated that the stadium will not be ready for the upcoming home game for the national team.
Magogo expressed disappointment at the slow pace of the ongoing works on the stadium.
