New Immigration laws force American club to cancel tour to Uganda

New Immigration laws force American club to cancel tour to Uganda

28 Feb 2018, 20:32

USA fourth-tier club FC Minneapolis has cancelled its tour to Uganda citing sudden changes in United States Immigration Law. 

Minneapolis was expected in Uganda in mid-March with a high profile friendly against the Uganda Cranes initially set for March 18 at Mandela National Stadium in Kampala.

The club noted that they have written a letter informing FUFA on their inability to travel due to the reason [which was not elaborated].

The club is handled by Ian Sendi, a Ugandan-born coach who doubles as coach. 

"This game was meant to open up new football relationships between the United States and the people of Uganda. We will continue working with FUFA and the US relevant authorities to see how we can move forward with our arrangements.” Said Sendi.

Reschedule

“We are trying to consult with legal experts to find out to what extent this may impact us as a team [therefore] we are requesting the Federation to postpone the match indefinitely until we have a clear understanding of the situation,” part of the letter from the club to FUFA reads.
