Plascon-USPA unveil three-year partnership


Kansai Plascon Uganda and the Uganda Sports Press Association ( USPA) have announced a three-year partnership.

The deal worth UGX300M was unveiled on Monday morning during the quarterly USPA meeting held Imperial Hotel, Kampala.

Plascon Managing Director Mr. Santosh Gumte, who was flanked by the USPA president Moses Lubega said that the partnership with USPA is a natural fit that had to be formalized sooner than later due to Plascon’s long-term strategic approach.

“USPA has been one of the longest and consistent supporters of Uganda’s sports. Through the sports
journalists many sports disciplines have received a voice and a platform to be seen, heard and endear
themselves to fans. You have supported athletes over the years, and crucially held administrators
accountable. For this, we are grateful to partner with you because of the shared objective of promoting
sports growth in this country,” Santosh said.

In his remarks, Lubega thanked Plascon for the support extended to the association.

“We are grateful that a brand of Plascon’s stature has sought to associate with USPA. This means it has appreciated what we are doing and would like to push us further. But in turn we also pledge to support the brand in its endeavours. Our work begins now. We need to prove that a partnership with USPA is worth the while,” said Mr. Lubega.

The part of the sponsorship will cater for the annual USPA road safety campaign, while the rest will cover two new properties withing the quarterly meetings; the sports journalist of the month and Twake Moment of the month.

The journalist of the month will be a cash prize worthy UGX500,000 and will be chosen by the USPA Technical team while the Twaake Moment of the month is an ongoing Plascon Sports Campaign urging fans to show their colours for their respective clubs and teams. The cash prize for that will be UGX250,000.
