GTV will screen more Super League matches next season. They will also ensure that clubs get DVDs for their screened games not later than five days after match day.

James Opoka, an official of RP Productions, made the promise while handing over DVDs to clubs at FUFA House, Mengo yesterday. RP Productions were contracted to record matches on behalf of the Super League media and commercial rights owners, GTV.

“This was not part of the sponsorship in last season’s contract. We have decided to invest about $5,000 to make sure that we give FUFA the master copies and the clubs copies of the recorded matches as a way of supporting the game. We hope that the DVDs will not be used for commercial, but for technical purposes,” said Opoka at the weekly FUFA press conference.

GTV screened 51 matches last season and they feel they can double the number next season.

Competitions Committee secretary Eng. Moses Magogo said that they were working to set minimum standards for upcountry stadiums, so that they can screen more matches outside Kampala.

“We are also going to enter long-term contracts with the stadiums. What we want is for them to be available so that we run the competition on schedule,” said Magogo on the competition, which starts on August 2.

Magogo also defended the new regulations that require all players to have contracts saying that it will help stabilise the players and put an end to defections. Above all, Magogo added, it will help clubs that nurtured junior talents to get compensation as per the new FIFA regulations.
