BUL’s chief executive officer Joseph Mutaka recently achieved a remarkable milestone as he graduated with a diploma in football administration and management.
Mutaka at the same time with forty two other football administrators completed a football administration and management course level II (FAMACOII) offered by the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) last year, thereby enhancing their knowledge in managing football operations.
The extensive 400-hour course discussed various modules including; governance (encompassing leadership, association/club models and management, venues, and events), football as a sport (addressing sporting structures, infrastructure and youth development, coaching and refereeing perspectives), and football as a business (covering marketing, branding, revenue generation, finance management, communication, and matchday organization).
To mark their success and completion of the enriching course, their graduation ceremony was held on 5th January at Jevine Hotel in Kampala, and was graced by scholarly football authorities – namely; the first FUFA vice president Justus Mugisha, FUFA deputy chief executive officer in charge of football – Kizza Decolas and director of football development at FUFA – Ali Mwebe. The FUFA executive secretary Ronnie Kalema was also in attendance.
Mutaka’s successful completion of the course demonstrates his commitment to honing his skills in football administration and management, and BUL will without doubt benefit from his newly acquired knowledge and expertise.
