The new Corporate league executive committee led by their chairperson David ‘Awilo’ Agaba was flanked by the board members, new CEO Melisa Tabaro Muhiirwa (heads the secretariat) and patron Richard Byabagaba during the well attended press briefing.

“We can not wait for this new season to kick off. Preparations have been well made” Awilo noted.

The Corporate league has grown to become a strong brand in the areas of organizing sports activities that bring together corporate people from the various companies on a monthly basis.

This happens every last Sunday of the month from March to November with the companies engaged in different sporting activities.

This year’s edition will be the 16th time since inception and will kick off on Sunday, 25th March 2018 at Mandela National Stadium, Namboole.

The board has Dennis Mbidde Ssbuggwawo, Mike Kajubi, Willis Tumwine, Sams Tuhimbise, Moses Kaduyu and Richard Kawere, all former chairmen while Richard Byabagaba, the Managing director of the NSSF is the patron.

Byabagaba encouraged many companies to join the bandwagon for the benefit of many workers who need good health.

I am passionate about sports because it is important for healthy living. We have grown from 20 companies to 50 and this is testament of the value attached to the corporate league.
