Uganda Super League Clubs share 800m

Everything commercial smells rosy for the Uganda Super League even with the biting economic hardships.

The Shs2.2b title sponsorship three-year deal signed by Uganda Breweries Limited and the USL on Friday will see Shs400m cash disbursed to the league every season, Shs18m of which going to each of the 16 clubs starting this month.

It also hands the competitionís naming rights to UBL, with the tournament being called Bell Uganda Super League for the next three years. The package, too, includes four sets of uniforms for each club.

U-15 league concerns
Clubs will start receiving their allocated Shs800m (Shs50m each) on their accounts from SuperSport, who signed a five-year broadcast deal with USL in April, tomorrow. It will be disbursed in the form of two months instalments.

The remaining Shs133m of the total Shs933m annual cash grant to USL will go into league management, including paying of referees and running of the secretariat.

Former title sponsors Ecobank have weighed in with Shs300m, according to USL board chairman Kavuma Kabenge, who said of that Shs100m is on the bank account.

USL are now valued at Shs15.5b with SuperSport, UBL and Ecobank packages. But there have been concerns over USL management priorities with their 2011/12 budget not catering for the U-15 league.




It was supposed to have started last season, according to the Jinja Declaration.

"Yes we are late," admitted Kabenge, "But we want to have very good first teams this term and next season, the U-15s will be our priority."
