Many teams are struggling to sustain themselves in the league and currently survive on the StarTimes sponsorship.

 
Football sponsorships in Uganda do not come easy as many Uganda Premier League sides can attest.
 
Many are struggling to sustain themselves in the league and currently survive on the StarTimes sponsorship and to a small extent fans and individuals for some of the teams.
 
This cannot be said of Buganda Region Football Association side Kajjansi United Football Club that is enjoying a fruitful partnership with Uganda Clays who operates within their vicinity.
 
Last week, the Katonga Group leaders renewed their partnership with Uganda Clays at a colorful ceremony at Uganda Clays offices, where they received a full set of jerseys on top of a granting them continued use of their ground. Kampala Executive Aviation is the other partners who came on board for Kajjansi with a set of playing boots worth sh4.5m.
 
And more is coming, according to the team’s CEO Abdu Ssemugenyi. He said they are in partnership with the community to develop talent and uplift the standard of the game in the area.
 
“Since Lweza football club that was uniting the people of Kajjansi was sold, we decided to keep the game alive by forming this team which has some of its players working with Uganda Clays,” Ssemugenyi said.
 
“We are targeting playing the Big League as per our three-year strategic plan. We want to play not more than two years in the region league before joining the Big League,” Ssemugenyi stated.
 
As part of their partnership, Uganda Clays is also going to upgrade and improve their home ground to the FUFA standards; patching it up with grass and a perimeter fence and wall.
 
Norbert Kazibwe, the club’s chairman, his vice William Kato, and team manager, Rashid Ssemakokiro and some of the playing staff received the new jerseys from Uganda Clays Managing director George Inholo.
