UGANDA: Super Sport secures 12 billion deal to cover  USL

Local football stands to reap big in the next five years after South Africa-based Pay Television Service provider SuperSport sealed a 12 billion Shillings broadcast deal with the Ecobank Super League of Uganda.

Announcing the deal at Serena Hotel yesterday, SuperSportís head of Africa Gary Rathbone promised to ensure "excellent and unparalleled quality in taking football in Uganda to the next level."

"We are excited about the opportunity to invest in the league which has the potential of becoming the best in Africa," said Rathbone.

The contract will run from the 2011/12 season for the next five years with potential for renewal thereafter. It also covers any competitions played under the auspices of the ESL and reserves broadcast for SuperSport.

Between 18 and 20 match-weeks will be broadcast per season, with double-headers given prominence.
Rathbone said match highlights will be provided to local TV stations, with one live game, and another delayed, on the national broadcaster.

Clubs stand to benefit from funding, the amount of  which SuperSport and ESL officials declined to disclose, but a trusted source revealed that each club will receive about Shs59m of the Shs833m pool every season to help develop structures.

"In SuperSport we have found the best partner with whom we are going to achieve professional football in Uganda," said ESL board chairperson Kavuma Kabenge.

This deal also includes SuperSport training stakeholders in football administration. SuperSport will also develop, manage and administer the ESL website.
