Fufa Super League side Sports Club Victoria University (SCVU) are still destined for bigger things despite minor cracks cutting through the side’s ambitions and football goals.
In partnership with Joma, they unveiled a new kit for 2013 a few days ago. The new kit will be worn for the first time on January 11 when SCVU hosts Bul FC at Namboole and will be available for sale soon, according to club’s PRO Leon Senyange.
Joma is a Spanish sports clothing manufacturer, which currently produces footwear and clothing for football, running and tennis. Joma also dresses Spanish La liga side Valencia.
The 2013 kit comprises of red shirts and shorts (home), white shirts and shorts (away) with a monochromatic crest to complement the design.
The kit has a flat finish construction to improve comfort and performance. Temperature regulation is helped by ventilation zones, consisting of a series of tiny laser cut holes from the under arms to the waistband, allowing air to circulate to keep players comfortable.
Wow! This leaves a mark for other clubs to look at. SCVU also announced a partnership with Dasani who become the official water partners. Dasani will be keeping the team hydrated during the league and during training.
But despite this, the club is on the verge of closing business by January 31 if sanity does not prevail in Ugandan football. A lot of changes are already going on within.
The club went ahead to terminate coach Sam Ssimbwa’s contract but according to chairman Simo Dubajic, his contract can be rescinded as the club evaluates the situation in Uganda’s football.
“Ssimbwa’s contract fits into the evaluation process but he will be with us until January 31,” explained Dubajic. But the 45-year-old former Express coach, who joined the free spending side in July on a two-year-deal, is optimistic something will be reached at before the set date.
“My contract with the club is still valid but I leave that to the club to sort it out before that date reaches. It’s clear that if they stop me before my contract ends they know what to do,” clarified Ssimbwa.
The club confirmed that it officially part ways with Serbian midfielder Ilic Milos, Nigerian Victor Idika, Geoffrey Ssimbwa, goalkeeper Umar Maboogi and defender Lawrence Bakiranze.
