MTN Uganda today announced a three year landmark sponsorship deal towards KCCA Football Club activities.
Announcing this sponsorship, Chief Executive Officer Wim Vanhelleputte remarked, “Today we launch a partnership between two winning teams. MTN Uganda is therefore proud to sponsor KCCA FC sporting activities to the tune of over One Billion Two Hundred and Ninety Million Uganda Shillings (Ugx. 1.290B). This will support club activities for the next three years. With this landmark partnership, we are of the strong belief that this will go a long way in strengthening the club activities and by default, the players’ welfare.” KCCA FC will receive Ugx. 430 million per year as part of this MTN Sponsorship package.

MTN has previously sponsored the Uganda National Football and Cricket teams.
Congratulating KCCA FC on its recent accolades in the Uganda Premier League, Wim added, “MTN as the number one telecommunications company identifies strongly with the success that you have achieved over the recent years.

We have a strong partnership with KCCA already as an institution, working jointly to support development of our city and this is evident in our construction of sanitation facilities from the MTN Kampala Marathon proceeds and more recently through MTN’s 21 Days of Y’ello Care where we invested in various KCCA schools in Lubiri and Bukoto.
The Executive Director, Kampala Capital City Authority Miss Jennifer Musisi lauded MTN’s support to KCCA FC. Noting that MTN’s continued support of the sporting sector continues to cement its reputation as a reliable partner in development of the city and its stakeholders. “Thank you for helping us in the transformation journey of Kampala and not tiring to partner with KCCA,” she concluded.
As a key partner in Uganda’s overall development, MTN shall continue to identify opportunities to support and sponsor in line with our mission of spreading our Y’ello wherever we operate to make our customers lives better.

On his Twitter profile, he says those offended are missing the humour. The Rwandans insist the 1994 Genocide against the tutsi is not something to joke about.
