“Keep the Hawk flying” is the bold slogan of Germany based company One Tex Pro Gloves.
The company has extensively established a strong base in Africa with Uganda among the CECAFA region countries embedded.
Uganda Cranes and Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) first choice goalkeeper and captain Charles Lukwago signed a pact with this company.
Lukwago, 26, will don the gloves during the training sessions, domestic competitions (Stanbic Uganda Cup and Uganda Premier League) as well as other tournaments outside Uganda.
He revels in this endorsement deal, one that he believes will boost his performance.
I am really proud to be selected to be part of endorsement deal for One Tex Pro Gloves. This means a lot to me. I want to thank One Tex Pro Gloves. I am sure that this will go a long way in motivating me as a goalkeeper and drawing other goalkeepers to this amazing brand. I am sure this partnership will help both of us. We are certainly moving to another level.Charles Lukwago, KCCA Goalkeeper and captain
In Uganda, the company zeroed on Lukwago given his remarkable work ethics and record as a goalkeeper for club and country.
The former Proline and Lweza goalkeeper who is now currently at KCCA is now proud as one of the few Ugandan sportsmen with personal endorsement deals from companies, an initiative that boosts brands with popularity and income.
Deal Nitty Gritty:
Kawowo Sports has established that besides the pairs of gloves which Lukwago will be wearing during training sessions and matches, there is a cumulative amount of money that he will be subjected to.
Lukwago remains part of the Uganda Cranes team and one of the goalkeepers in the queue after the retirement of Denis Onyango.
Other goalkeepers in Africa associated with One Tex Pro Gloves company include Juma Kaseja, Metacha Mnata, Shaban Kado (in Tanzania), Emery Mvuyekure (Rwanda), Brian Bwire, Joseph Okoth, Wilson Oburu, Michael Wanjala (Kenya), Nasir Hildier (South Sudan) , among others.
