betPawa becomes Official Partner of FUBA (Federation of Uganda Basketball Associations)

African gaming powerhouse, betPawa has entered a massively valuable partnership with the Federation of Uganda Basketball Associations (FUBA) as their official sponsor.

The deal is worth Shs2.6b (over USD. 600,000) across a period of three years for the senior men (Silverbacks) and women’s teams, the Gazelles. The partnership entails betPawa taking care of travel, accommodation, training, and medical insurance for the two teams.

Additionally, Shs150,000 will be paid to each player in camp for every game won, and these sums will be deposited immediately.

State Minister of State for Sports Peter Ogwang, who was in attendance at the meetup for the partnership signing, said, “We shall support this partnership and push a motion to have taxes on the gaming and lottery departments reduced since they are the biggest supporters of sports in the country. I am happy to say that as government of Uganda, we will support betPawa in the issues of taxes so that you can improve the infrastructure of sports in Uganda.” FUBA betPawa

Meanwhile Spencer Okach, the Chief Brand Officer of betPawa said, “The costs to be covered under this partnership include team training, travel and accommodation to attend tournaments, medical insurance and supplements, among others.” He added, “We believe that to elevate the game of basketball the players are at the centre and are as important as proper structures hence our 360-degree approach.”

This partnership is a huge boost to the senior national teams, who have frequently missed tournaments outside the country as a result of a lack of funding.
