MYDA FC officials were left stranded at a hotel as the FUFA officials who were to conduct the Club Pro Agenda were no where to be seen.
FUFA is taking the clubs through the Club Pro Agenda as they target to immigrate from amateur to professional football.
MYDA executive members were all set for the meeting and booked Portsprings Villa Hotel in Malaba for the two-day meeting.
The club’s Executive Members, who were at the hotel at 8am, were however left stranded when no FUFA official showed up.
Ivan Kintu Bayige, Yusuf Awuye, Aggrey Ashaba and Rauf Matuko were the FUFA officials who were assigned to meet MYDA FC.
“It was a misunderstanding,” FUFA head of communications Ahmed Hussein told this website when asked to clarify about the matter.
“I earlier thought that the meeting was scheduled to take place in Tororo but our officials were later notified that it was to take place in Malaba.
“They are already in Tororo and I have talked to them however they are not risking going to Malaba due to the Covid19 issues. FUFA is a law-abiding body and we have to respect the government restrictions.”
Ahmed Hussein added that there is no need for alarm, as FUFA is still in touch with the club to see the way forward and an agreement will be reached to reschedule the meeting.”
MYDA is based in Malaba, one of the border areas that have been termed as high risk
Tororo district has registered over 10 community cases while more than 100 suspected cases have been quarantined since March.
It is however said that MYDA had already informed the RDC and DPC of the region about the meeting with FUFA.
