Uganda Football Chief Suspended For Two Months By FIFA

Uganda FA (FUFA) president Moses Magogo has been suspended from all football-related activity for two months and fined $10,000 (N3.6million) by FIFA for his role in the resale of World Cup tickets.
The FUFA president was sanctioned by FIFA for reselling tickets relating to the 2014 World Cup.

Mr Magogo had taken charge of Ugandan football just a year earlier.

FIFA said Mr Magogo had entered into a plea bargain with the organisation.

FIFA said in a statement:

The chairman of the adjudicatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee has ratified the plea bargain entered into by Mr Moses Hassim Magogo, President of the Federation of Uganda Football Associations and member of the Confederation of African Football Executive Committee, and the chairperson of the investigatory chamber.

An investigation into Mr Magogo was opened on 23 July 2018 related to the resale of 2014 FIFA World Cup tickets. In accordance with art. 67 par.1 of the FIFA Code of Ethics, the parties have mutually agreed on the following sanctions: A fine of CHF 10,000, a two-month suspension from taking part in any kind of football-related activity at national and international level.

The suspension became effective upon the validation of the agreement by the chairman of the adjudicatory chamber on 10 October 2019.

While the investigation was ongoing, Mr Magogo was allowed to contest Confederation of African Football elections - gaining a place on the body's Executive Committee in July.

He will serve his suspension until 10 December 2019.
