The timely one-year renewable deal has been hailed as a game changer in the face of adversity that had left the T20 showpiece without a sponsor last year.

 
Unimoni's sh15m sponsorship towards the National T20 Cup offers a much-needed heft in Uganda Cricket Association's efforts to fill sponsorship gaps on local events.
 
The timely one-year renewable deal has been hailed as a game changer in the face of adversity that had left the T20 showpiece without a sponsor last year.
 
"This is all part of our progressive movement as an association. Identifying with a global brand in the capacity of Unimoni is such a huge honour for us as and we can hope for better things yet still" said Martin Ondeko, UCA Chief Executive Officer.
 
The partnership which was launched Monday at Lugogo stadium comes with numerous packages that are set to enhance the standards of the Twenty-Twenty contest.
 
"We are thrilled to present this year's edition. The timing could not be better as we have only recently rebranded in Uganda. We seek to get together through the game we a number of people. It is indeed an honour and hopefully, there is more we can achieve further" said Nazeem Khan, Country Head of Unimoni Uganda.
 
Conversely, it is a good day for local players who will stand a chance to win different accolades from as low as the man of the match performances to major standouts at the end of the tournament.
 
"The rebranded tournament will be so rewarding to the players who are indeed the main components. I want to report that at the end, winners will receive sh2m and second best team will walk away with sh1m" Nazeem added.
 
A cricket carnival of sorts is set to headline celebrations that will come after the final of this year's competition.
 
Meanwhile, a three-peat is in the chase for Challengers who got their campaign up and running with two wins over JACC Sunday at Jinja oval.
