Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has confirmed a change in programme of hosting the FIFA President Gianni Infantino.

Originally expected to arrive on Saturday, 25th February 2017, Infantino will now set foot in Uganda on Friday, 24th  and depart the following day.

FUFA Communications Manager Ahmed Hussein confirmed the development in a statement to the media;

The programme has been changed to suit the stakeholders who will meet the FIFA President on the historic visit to Uganda.

It was done in consultation with the team at FIFA in Zurich and all parties involved are comfortable with the new schedule.

The change will not affect the duration of stay for FIFA President in Uganda. He will be here still for the two day period which had been communicated earlier

Infantino who was elected as FIFA President 2016 is expected to meet The President of the Republic of Uganda HE Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, The Minister of Sports and Education, Hon Janet Museveni, FUFA Executive Committee, Members of FUFA, football stakeholders inclusive of the sponsors of FUFA and Uganda Cranes.

Since his election last year, Infantino has embarked on meeting FIFA Member Associations around the globe to share ideas on football development projects.
