The long awaited government verdict on the wrangles of Ugandan football particularly surrounding the management of the national league has finally come out.
The government came in to solve the impasse following disagreements between the Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) and the league managers Uganda Super League Ltd (USLL) that gave birth to two leagues; Fufa Super League (FSL) sanctioned by the federation and the Bell Uganda Super League under USLL.
In a statement released by the Minister of Education and Sports Hon. Jessica Alupo Epel on Monday 12th at Media Centre in Kampala, a lot of issues were tackled in a seven page document.
The Council for East and Central Africa Football Associations (Cecafa) has confirmed that the once-troubled Darfur region in western Sudan will host the 2013 Cecafa Club Championships next month.
The football body said that Democratic Republic of Congo side St. Eloi Lupopo will take part in the event.
Cecafa Secretary General Nicholas Musonye also told BBC Sport that "a team from Eritrea is yet to confirm".
Musonye said that Darfur is 90% ready to host the event, but for only two of the three groups.
"Two football stadiums in Al Fashir - Al Nuggaa [capacity 15,000] and Al Fashir [45,000] - were of impressive quality and so were hotel accommodations and transport," he said.
