Dostiva Sports Management preaches excellence

Sports management particularly in Uganda and the East African region remains largely a non-ventured periphery.

Right from players, coaches and other sports administrators, their management has always left a lot to be desired and often leaves this cluster of personalities in a disadvantaged zone.

A couple of professional players and managers have come equal to the task with affluent management in the jurisdiction of their respective work tasks.

Fast growing Dostiva sports management with roots in the United Kingdom and Uganda, exactly fits into this frame to serve the purpose optimally, and to the brim.
