The 2017 Corporate league season officially kicked off at Nelson Mandela National stadium, Kampala on Sunday.

At least 45 companies gathered for the day long football gala whose major essence among others is to create time and a plat form for various company workers to keep fit, socialize and network as a means of widening the business chain.

Telecommunications giants Airtel Uganda has once again proved they are a force to be reckoned with.

Airtel Uganda defeated Pride Micro Finance 3-0 before overcoming DFCU Bank 2-1.

They drew goal-less with Orient Bank before falling to Hotel Africa and Spedag Interfreight 2-0 and 1-0 respectively.

Hotel Africana lost to Spedag 1-0 and won by the same score line 1-0 over National Water and Sewage Corporation.

In some of the other games, CAA edged Total Uganda 2-0 with Muhammod Mutebi and Ponsiano Mulindwa scoring for Civial Aviation Authority (CAA).

Richard Okot, the chairman of the Uganda Corporate League was overwhelmed by the turn up on the opening day.

This has been a great beginning of the 2017 season. We hope and anticipate that companies maintain this spirit for the rest of the outings.

The purpose of the Corporate league is to provide the platform for corporates to associate and exercise their bodies away from the busy routine of work places.

Some of the companies taking part for the first time included Ndejje University, Pepsi, Electoral Commission, EFC, Uganda National Road Authority (UNRA) and Uganda Health Marketing Group (UHMG).
