FUFA has confirmed plans to fly the Uganda National Team (Uganda Cranes) to Malawi by chartered flight for the final Total AFCON qualifier to be played on 29th March 2021.
Uganda Airlines will fly the team on one of its bombardiers.
The latest development was confirmed by FUFA Communications Director, Ahmed Hussein.
‘The team will fly out on 28th March 2021 aboard Uganda Airlines Bombardier. It is important for the National Team to travel with a lot of comfort during the current COVID-19 times when you need the entire team to move together for better preparations,’ he said before adding that, ‘ the final contingent will be released by FUFA.’
It will be the second time in this campaign that FUFA has paid for a chartered flight to transport Uganda Cranes. The opening fixture against Burkina Faso saw Cranes use Uganda Airlines as they picked a valuable point off the West African Giants in Ouagadougou.
Uganda plays Burkina Faso on Wednesday at St. Mary’s Kitende. The Cranes are currently second in group B on seven points.
