The delegation was led by MTN Uganda Chief Marketing Officer Sen Somdev who confirmed a 30M pledge to Uganda Cranes for a win against Algeria in the AFCON Qualifier game slated for 18th June 2023 in Douala, Cameroon.

“We know that football is the biggest sport in the world and equally in Uganda, football is loved. It is the reason why MTN returned to sponsor the Uganda Cranes and together, we shall make this country proud.” He said.

“Ahead of the game against Algeria, we promise a package of 30M for a win. This is to help give motivation to our players and make sure they bring joy to us.” Somdvev added.

FUFA CEO Edgar Watson and FUFA Executive Committee member Rogers Byamukama who also heads the FUFA Marketing and Communications Committee were also present at Muteesa II Stadium in Wankulukuku.

Byamukama thanked MTN and believes their return will revive the love and vibe towards the Uganda Cranes.

“We all know what MTN is capable of doing because they were here before and we saw how they pushed the brand of the national team. They have returned even bigger and better and we have the confidence this partnership will yield fruits.”

It should be noted that MTN-Uganda promised 2M for the man of the match in the game against Tanzania and Rogers Mato was the recipient.

Uganda is currently joint second with Tanzania in Group F with four points and will need to win their remaining two games to secure progression to the continental showpiece.
