Uganda is currently the reigning champion for U15 (boys), U17 boys and girls, U-20 (men), CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup and KCCA FC hold the CECAFA club championship (Kagame Club) cup.
Despite a variety of talent, the football structures laid by the mother body continue to spice ingredients in Uganda teams’ performances.

The 2021 U-20 AFCON final tournament is also a world Cup qualifiers tournament too.
The semifinalists in the AFCON finals will represent Africa at the forthcoming FIFA World Cup finals set to be held in June 2021 in Indonesia.
