Federation of Uganda Football Association, FUFA, has taken a step to ease the work of referees and the officials ahead of competition restart.
The Federation has on Thursday opened a Competition Management System Training for the referees and assistants for the UPL and Big League.
FUFA Deputy CEO (Football) Decolas Kiiza says that the system will enhance the referee reporting format and integrity of the competitions.
With the new system, a referee can enter and process his match reports and report misconduct online after the game.
“We want our referees to be appointed through this very system and their reports will also be accessed through the same system,” Kiiza has said.
“We will require two major reports; the flash report which gives the major highlights of the match which will be received within 12 hours and the comprehensive report to be received within 24 hours after the match.”
Kiiza commended FUFA’s Information Technology Department which designed the system, for being innovative.
He added: “We pray that it bares the fruits we expect from it especially improving the integrity of our competitions.”
The system, which is being used internationally, can help in sharing data seamlessly, help federations in assigning roles to officials, track games, report on travel and other expenses, manage payments for referees, notify match officials of games assigned among others.
