The three year sponsorship deal worth sh300m is expected to cater for the smooth running of the league as the second round is about to kick off.

The Federation of the Uganda Basketball Association will go into the second round of the National League secure after receiving sponsorship from Tusker Lite for the next three seasons.

The three year sponsorship deal worth sh300m is expected to cater for the smooth running of the league as the second round is about to kick off.

“The money is going to enable the smooth running of the national league, the 3X3 leagues, and the playoffs. However, how it’s going to be allocated will be communicated,” FUBA’s Vice President Marketing, Media and Publicity Arnold Katabi said.

UBL’S Cathy Agaba called the partnership ‘natural’ pointing to the fact that the two brands bring friends together.

“This sponsorship is a reaffirmation of our faith in the National Basketball League and our desire to help the sport grow, while bringing friends together to enjoy fun moments which are what our brand is really about,” Agaba said.

The timely arrival of the sponsorship package will help elevate the sport that kicked off the season without any sort of sponsorship. For now, FUBA is looking towards using it for logistics, referees securing the arena and other venues.

On Wednesday as champions City Oil take on the JKL Dolphins will mark the start of the sponsorship.
