Fufa Meets Topflight Clubs On League Sponsorship

Ahead of the next season’s Fufa topflight football league due to kick off in August, local football body Fufa met club officials to discuss the documentation and the sponsorship of the league.

Moses Magogo, the Fufa president, addressed the club heads on Monday at Fufa house in Mengo to forge a way forward. Sources intimate that clubs are adamant to kick-start any games before a sponsor is unveiled, something Fufa is yet to guarantee.

If previous sponsor SuperSport returns as widely speculated, it is said that clubs agreed to forfeit 30 per cent of the deal to brokers Uganda Super League Limited (USLL). This would be on condition that Fufa wins approval from government and Fifa as a sign of two supreme bodies that they have endorsed the league to go on.

The sponsorship money would also not come in a lumpsum but in bits, which would first go through Fufa before it dispenses it to the club accounts. It was also agreed to form a five-man committee to run the league with one representative from the clubs.

All this is based on SuperSport’s comeback as the official league broadcaster and they are said to have ordered for the submission of fixtures before the end of this month for proper schedule.
