This was announced during the launch of the â€œGreat Four â€” G4,â€ an association aimed at uniting Ugandans, who are fans of premiership soccer league clubs, especially the top four Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea.
â€œWe are speaking to many but we can not reveal the names now. What we want is to fight local social problems by using these people who have a large following,â€ said the G4 secretary Aldrine Nsubuga.
Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand and Quinton Fortune are some of the stars that have visited the country before, on goodwill missions.
According to the G4 chairman Dennis Mbidde, the group will bridge gaps between Ugandan fans, the premiership personalities and footballers.
The association will be launched at 6.00pm at Ange Noir on Sunday during the Arsenal-Liverpool game.
The group will also muscle support for local sides Cranes inclusive.
â€œWe also want fans to appreciate the importance of donning attire that reflect local clubs because they also need support,â€ said Nsubuga.
