Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has officially launched the campaign to usher in a new design for the national teams’ jerseys.
FUFA President Eng.Moses Magogo launched the campaign during the weekly press conference held on Wednesday morning at the Federation’s headquarters in Mengo, Kampala.
‘Like we communicated earlier, today is the occasion where the historic jersey that the Cranes used in the qualification campaign of 2015 and 2017 and in AFCON finals in Gabon will be retired as as away of honour’ said the FUFA President.
The campaign will be open to the general public to summit their entries for a month starting today (22nd March 2017) to 22nd April.
‘We open a campaign whereby for one month starting today will be running for any Ugandan, or group of Ugandans or organisation that is interested in coming up with the new design’ he indicated.
The entries will be open in three categories including the Uganda Cranes (men), Crested Cranes (women) and the other subsequent national teams including the Sand Cranes (national beach soccer team), Futsal, Kobs (U23), Hippos (U20) and Cubs (U17).
The jersey colors will be predominantly red and yellow for home games and predominantly white for away games.
‘Unlike previously where all the national teams have been using the same design, this time round the Uganda Cranes and Crested cranes jerseys will be different in design while the other subsequent teams will also have another design but differnet shades’ added Magogo.
The overall winner will be announced by a panel set up by FUFA and will walk away with a cash prize of UGX 5 million shillings following the terms and conditions in place. The winner will also watch Uganda Cranes games at home free for one year.
