Veteran marketer Alice Namatovu and businessman Hakim Kasirye are among the over 50 people registered for the football intermediaries (football agents) course.

Namatovu is currently the head of marketing and sales at BBS Terefaina having previously served as a sports journalist at the state owned UBC TV.

There are only two female personalities (the other is Mariam Nantale) registered for this course among the 52 entrants.

Kasirye is a self-styled businessman but remains familiar face in the football spheres since he is among the KCCA FC fans leaders.

It is a big opportunity to serve the beautiful game as a players’ intermediary. i am humbled for the course which will further equip us with more skills and knowledge in our line of duty

For starters, Namatovu brokered the transfer of strikers Denis Mwemezi from a virtually unknown entity of Ssese in the Airtel sponsored Masaza cup to Vipers Sports Club.

She is also the agent to a couple of many players as Jibril Nsimbe of Ssingo Ssaza.
