The American Football Federation of Uganda has suspended all activities including scrimmages and clinics due to the threat of the coronavirus, COVID-19.
AFFU President Steven G. Okeng:
“The AFFU will suspend all its activities until further notice. AFFU wishes to emphasis that these are temporary measures to proactively minimise the possible spread of COVID-19 in Uganda as advised by the Ugandan Ministry of Health. However, AFFU will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates.
The AFFU seeks the support and understanding of the American football community in Uganda to safeguard public health and the well being of all communities in Uganda. It is part of our social responsibility to do so.
The AFFU further advises the community to maintain best practices in hygiene and socially responsible behaviour during this time and to avoid handshakes. We should continue to remain spiritually resilient and support each other, especially those who are vulnerable in our community.”
