The Ordinary FUFA General Assembly is the supreme and legislative body of football in Uganda, comprised of 34 members (Associations) that are represented by 88 delegates.
The Assembly takes place annually where delegates convene and review activities carried out in the previous twelve months plus planning for the future.
According to Article 21 (2) of the FUFA Statutes and Regulations, the FUFA President conducts business at the General Assembly in compliance with the standing orders.

Prior to the Ordinary FUFA General Assembly, all Member Associations convene independent annual Assembles in accordance with the FUFA Statutes.
This allows resolutions and reports from Members Associations to be agreed on before they are presented in the FUFA General Assembly for discussions.
