Uganda league champions KCCA FC parade trophy before sponsors StarTimes



Uganda premier league 2018-2019 champions KCCA FC this morning showed gratitude to their main sponsors StarTimes when they visited their Lumumba avenue based offices with their trophy to appreciate all the support accorded.

Led by their captian Benjamin Ochan, the team headed to StarTimes offices, signed some of the staff jerseys and also took group photos with staff. StarTimes from the time of partnering with KCCA FC has seen the club complete its stadium in Lugogo and is said to have injected billions of shillings.

StarTimes Executive Vice President Franklin Wang in a congratulatory message said “I would like to inform everyone that the league had 480 games played in different stadium countrywide in the StarTimes

During this season, we have been able to broadcast 75 out of 100 live matches in different stadium countrywide. This is almost double the number of live game broadcast live in the previous season. It is also the biggest number of live broadcast games ever in the history of live football broadcasting in Uganda.

These matches were widely watched on both Sanyuka TV using the traditional television as well as on the StarTimes ON, which is a popular the StarTimes App that shows both local and international content.

During this season we were able to have two night games at Namboole Stadium between Villa Vs Kirinya Jinja and Villa Vs Mbarara City. These matches were greatly watched both at the stadium and on the App even when they were also broadcasted during peak hours. This was the first time we had night games in over ten years in Ugandan Football.

 I would also like to thank teams their management and fans for the good discipline exhibited during this season 2018 / 2019. We have not had any cases of violence and discipline.

We thank the media, for the extensive coverage you have given us during this season, FUFA and UPL for the teamwork. We also would like to extend our appreciation of the security agencies for the work well done.

We are committed to continuously improve the quality of broadcasts. We also pledge to increase the number of upcountry game broadcasted live. We want to increase the number of night games with cooperation from the different club management and we plan to increase the total number of live games broadcasted in general.

We congratulate KCCA FC upon wining their 13 Championship title.”KCCA FC finished top of the league with 66 points after 30 games with last season’s champions Vipers FC coming second with 59 points. The club headcoach Mutebi in an interview with us promised to come even more dangerous next season. “We want to dominate Ugandan football,” he added.

Last year in August, StarTimes entered a 10-year deal for both tittle and broadcast rights for the now titled StarTimes Uganda Premier League and StarTimes big league.
