Namboole Stadium in Uganda has been closed to allow repairs to be made ahead of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Zambia.
The decision follows a complaint by Zambia's Football Association to the Confederation of African Football about the playing field, which it claimed was not ready to host a high-profile match.
Zambia's two-man advance team visited Uganda and took pictures of the pitch, dressing rooms and toilets.
And in a letter to CAF, Zambia General Secretary George Kasengele requested urgent intervention into the matter, asking the Ugandans to consider improving the playing area and dressing rooms.
FUFA chief executive officer Edgar Watson has confirmed that repair work will be carried out.
- We want to have a good game without any complaints, he told BBC Sport
The Cranes, who are coached by Scot Bobby Williamson, started training last week with a majority of local-based players training, while residential training starts on 30 September.
They are 1-0 down to Zambia from the first leg of the final-round qualifier - a Christopher Katongo goal giving the African champions a slender advantage.
Uganda have not qualified for the Africa Cup of Nations since 1978.
