Hosting AFCON 2027 is Uganda’s dream and last week, the Ugandan Parliament approved the proposal to give support to FUFA to have a joint bid with Tanzania.

23rd May is the deadline for the submission of 2027 hosting bids.

For any country to host the continental showpiece you need at least six stadiums while three are needed for a joint bid. The Minister of State for Sports Peter Ogwang has revealed the latest on the construction of Buhinga and Akii-bua Stadiums.

“In order to start the construction of Buhinga and Akii Bua a report on feasibility studies, concept designs, and environmental and social impact assessments was submitted to the Ministry of Finance.” Said Ogwang.
