With the Rugby league kicking off on Friday, the Uganda Rugby Union (URU) has Confirmed Nile Special Stout as the league new sponsor.
At a press briefing on monday, the president of Uganda Rugby Union Godwin Kayangwe unveiled a mouth-watering UGX670M sponsorship package from Nile Breweries.
The sponsorship package includes league prize money, club fundings to all rugby clubs in the league and prize money to special Categories under URU.
Speaking at the launch of the league, the URU president Godwin Kayangwe hailed Nile Breweries as solid partners and investors in the development of the game in Uganda given their decade-long partnership.
We whole heartedly welcome Nile Special Stout as the title sponsor of the League and we are privileged that rugby has been selected for the anchor sponsorship.
This is testament to the growth of the game as an entertaining spectacle. And while we will always have a special place for Nile Special, we will embrace Nile Special Stout on this new journey as we’ve launched our new ambitious strategy to make rugby the leading sport in the country. Thank you Nile Breweries for truly living the line.
The Nile Special Stout brand manager Francis Nyende noted that even though the sponsorship has changed hands to the new brand, Nile Special Stout, the commitment to partnering with URU and rugby is as high as it’s ever been.
Rugby is much more than a game. It’s a lifestyle, a livelihood for some, an entertainment for many and a proud flag bearer of our country. As a bold, dark and satisfying liquid, we share certain intrinsic values with rugby players and fans and as the first and only stout crafted in Uganda. Nile Special Stout is proud to partner with such a great property that consistently flies our flag high and proud.”
