Education and Sports Minister Jessica Alupo admitted the new National Council of Sports Regulations for Associations (under the NCS Sports Act, Cap 48) will go a long way in solving sports wrangles in Uganda.
A task force to fast-track a new Sports Act last week finalized its job, was signed into law by Alupo and within six months from commencement of these regulations.
She said: “Act asks all existing national sports associations to apply afresh to the NCS for registration within six months from commencement of these regulations.
“Not going to be business as usual. Next is we expect compliance from the footballing side. We shall also organise a seminar to make the new Act public.
A sports association which is not recognized by the council shall not use or refer to itself using “Uganda.”
