Official/Qualif-CDM 2026: Uganda-Algeria in Kampala.

The President of the Ugandan Federation, Moses Magogo Hassim , was very optimistic on Thursday, May 9, at the end of the visit of the inspector sent by CAF and FIFA to draw up a report on the state of the pitch at the Nelson Mandela Stadium in Kampala . The Confederation of African Football responded favorably to the scheduling of the Uganda-Algeria meeting counting for the 4th day of the 2026 World Cup qualifiers in Kampala

The match will take place on Monday June 10 at 5 p.m. (Algerian time), announces the FAF on its official website. The suspense over holding the match in the Ugandan capital had lasted a long time, since FIFA was skeptical about holding the match in the Nelson Mandela Stadium due to its poor condition. Now, and after having undertaken work and tested the pitch following a mini-tournament organized by the local authorities at the request of the International Football Federation, the pitch has been deemed passable to host this match.
