Express Football Club played the whole of last season without any sponsors. The financial challenges were evident and almost got the club relegated.
With the club on a restructuring process that has seen city lawyer Kiryowa Kiwanuka take on the mantle as new club chairperson, there could be a reason for a sigh of relief to many of the club faithfuls.
His ability to attract sponsors as evidenced at the time when he was the President of the Uganda Golf Union between 2014-2015 can as well breed confidence in the Express FC fans that a new dawn is before them.
Barely a week into office,there is good news that the Wankulukuku based side have acquired a new sponsor.
With details of the package yet to be revealed, www.chimpsports can reliably confirm that Equity bank has come on board as shirt sponsors for the Red Eagles.
The deal is set to be officially unveiled on Thursday 23 August, 2018 at Church House, Kampala Road where the Bank has its headquarters.
The last sponsor that Express FC had was pay TV company DSTV during 2016/17 season then under the stewardship of Hon.Florence Nakiwala Kiyingi as club chairperson.
