The power of networking remains a key component in the growth of sporting institutions; football clubs to say the least.
As one of the bold strategies to spread wings and acquire the right partners and working stakeholders, Uganda’s Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) has signed a key partnership with Egypt top flight club, El Gouna.
This partnership will involve the transfer of players between the two clubs, as well as developing and sharing of ideas for youth development.
KCCA FC was represented by the chairman Aggrey Ashaba and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Anisha Muhoozi during the signing of the pact in Egypt on Sunday, 11th August 2019.
