Sponsors to Award Prize Money Despite Uganda Cup Cancellation

FUFA has cancelled the 2019/20 season of the Stanbic Bank Uganda Cup, declaring the competition null and void (no decided winner) due to the continued COVID-19 restrictions on sports.

Despite the cancellation, Stanbic Bank, the competition’s main sponsor, will honour its commitment by paying prize monies to clubs that had progressed to the Round of 16 and the Quarter Finals.

According to FUFA President, Eng. Moses Magogo, the Federation had hoped to complete the season but due to the continued restrictions on sports, the Federation reluctantly decided to declare the 2019/20 Stanbic Bank Uganda Cup campaign null and void.

Stanbic Bank’s Head of Marketing & Communications, Daniel Ogong, said it was unfortunate that the season had to be cancelled as it promised to be the most exciting one yet.

“As a leading Bank, our mandate is to develop the economy in this country. Its from that point that we decided to sponsor the Uganda Cup because we believe that Football has a potential to employ millions of people,” Ogong said.

He added, “the prize money we committed, will be issued out. This prize money will go along way in supporting not only the teams but the players.”
