After refusing to sign the deed of adherence with Supersport, Viper SC’s patron Lawrence Mulindwa is set to hold talks with Azam TV officials on Thursday night with a motive to ensure they make it clear they want to sponsor the Uganda Premier League.
Kawowo Sports has reliably learnt that Mulindwa, Fufa Vice President in charge of league matters Denis Mbidde and Vipers chairman Haruna Kyobe will meet with Azam CEO Saad Kawemba and COO Eric Casse at a yet to be identified place in Entebbe. A source who preferred anonymity spoke to Kawowo Sports.
Mulindwa and co want to hear from Azam and see what they can offer in terms of monetary deals to each club. They are of a view that if Azam can offer Ush 50M or more to each club, they will persuade other clubs who had signed Supersport’s deed of adherence to move out of it.
It should be noted that Vipers and SC Victoria University refused to sign the deed citing loopholes and low financial support to the club. This prompted Supersport to tell FUFA to ensure all clubs sign before Cameras start rolling to show games.
Meanwhile, one of the ‘rebel’ club officials made it clear that meeting with Azam TV is intended to show the nation that the deal wasn’t a hoax as earlier stated by some circles. “They are not here to hijack the Supersport deal but confirm their interest in the Ugandan game.”
As usual, Kawowo Sports will bring you all the developments.
