On Thursday, MTN Uganda and KCCA Football Club (KCCA FC) signed a ten year partnership that will give MTN naming rights to club’s home ground facility located at Lugogo, in the outskirts of the city centre.
Due to this result of the partnership, the stadium will be called the MTN Omondi Stadium from now till the 10 years deal ends.
This will be in a move which MTN and KCCA FC honour the legacy of Phillip Omondi, the late football player who dedicated his life to football in Uganda as a player and coach.
“MTN Uganda has a long history of involvement in sports in this country and has been associated with KCCA FC for long. As the leading supporter of sports in the country, we considered it befitting that we further cement our association to this club. This partnership will be executed as part of the club’s bigger plans to upgrade its home,” Somdev Sen MTN Uganda Chief Marketing Officer said at the unveiling.
“Phillip Omondi had an illustrious career, so MTN and KCCA FC felt that his name should be kept alive in the home where he spent much of his career,” Somdev said.
