Uganda’s oldest football club, Express Football Club have intensified their preparations ahead of next season (2017/18).
On Thursday morning, the club officially unveiled Jungle Fever Youth Club as their partners for the next three years with the package valued at Shs 1B.
While unveiling the deal at Kibinge Motel in Kabuusu a suburb of Kampala, Club chairperson, Hon. Nakiwala Kiyingi who also doubles as the Minister of State for Youth and Children affairs indicated that the deal will help propel Express FC to greater heights.
“As Express FC, we are delighted to partner with Jungle Fever Youth Club as our sponsors. I believe the deal will help us in fulfilling our target as the biggest club in Uganda,” she said.
“Upon assuming the role of club chairperson, one of my targets was to get sponsors on board. I can now confirm this is steadily being achieved,” Nakiwala added.
The deal that entirely caters for club merchandise, training kit and match day jerseys will be divided into three portions with Ushs 350M coming every year for the next three years.
According to Hon. Nakiwala, Jungle Fever Youth Club will help in supplying the club with the necessary kit including track suits, soccer boots, jerseys, training equipment among others.
The club will also set up a merchandise shop at the stadium (Muteesa II stadium, Wakulukuku) where replica jerseys and other club stuff will be sold.
The club chairperson also intimated to this website that there is another potential sponsor in the pipeline and will be unveiled as soon as possible.
