List of 5 football agents and agencies in Uganda

Silvester Gachinga

Football agents are important as they arrange commercial deals by representing a player’s best interests at a club.

FIFA introduced new regulations requiring players and football clubs to deal solely with licensed agents for transfers and contract negotiations.

The top football agents and agencies in Uganda have been responsible for scouting talents, signing them under their agencies, and working towards finding a prospective club that fits their profile and builds their careers.

Here is a list of the best football agents and agencies in Uganda representing various players.

1. Geoffrey Kayemba- Tafag Sports Agency, Uganda

Geoffrey Kayemba is a Ugandan-born FIFA intermediary and the head of football at the Tafag Sports Agency. He is particularly renowned in the CECAFA region for facilitating the move of Ugandan players to Europe.

The Ugandan football agents’ contacts are vast, and he was once reportedly in contact with the Glasgow Rangers to sign Ugandan midfielder Aucho Khalid.

He currently represents Khalid Aucho, who plays for Young Africans in the Tanzanian Premier League, and Derrick Kakooza, who plies his trade for Egyptian side ENPPI SC.

Luzzi was driven by his deep desire to assist footballers and provide them with valuable connections and opportunities through his intermediary prowess.

However, in 2022, he received a 10-year ban from football by the Ugandan Football Association Ethics and Disciplinary Committee with two other officials, James Kaweesa and David Isabirye, for alleged match-fixing.

Among the list of football agencies in Uganda and their contacts is the Kawuulu Foundation. This foundation is located in Lugazi, Buikwe District in Uganda.

The foundation sponsors Lugazi FC and has recently partnered with FIFA-accredited player intermediaries Swaibu Luyombya and Sentongo.

They are licensed to represent any Ganda Boys FC players, and the two intermediaries have been heavily involved in scouting talent in Uganda.
