Eight beach soccer referees were awarded with FUFA badges over the weekend at a ceremony held at the offices of the FUFA Special Interest Groups in LungujjA.
The handover ceremony was presided over by former FIFA referee and Uganda Football Referees Association (UFRA) Vice Chairperson Rosebell Rwamuyamba, who encouraged the referees to execute their work with a positive attitude in order to maintain the badges.
“I am grateful for all the effort you put in. You must remain focused and dedicated to your job because FUFA reserves the right of giving the badges out and recalling them,” noted Rwamuyamba. “It is our mandate to fulfill FUFA’s mission to Develop, Promote and Protect football for all.
