The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) is reportedly in advances talks with the management of Aero beach, Entebbe to construct a state of art beach soccer facility.
The development was confirmed at the Fufa 95th Ordinary Assembly that convened at Multi-purpose hall in Adjumani district according to Kawowo Sports reports.
This all comes when Uganda is in contention to host the 2020 Africa Cup of Nations Beach Soccer tournament and Fufa are looking for a permanent home for the event.
The Aero Beach facility is spacious enough to construct a standard playing field with provision for training and warm-up field as well.
FUFA has already budgeted for at least $150,000 for completion of this facility that will be the new home of Beach Soccer in Uganda courtesy of the FIFA Forward Programme.
For a long time, Beach Soccer has been played at Lido and Sports beaches in Entebbe as well as the Mutola beach in Mukono.
The Kitubulu project had been commissioned but took a new twist when Entebbe Municipal councilors (from Division A) questioned the choice of the proposed facility being a lake shoreline, something that would be detrimental to the environment.
