Police FC chairman Asan Kasingye believes “it’s a partnership that can grow bigger” if handled well by the 2005 league champions.
While the managing director of Centenary Bank Fabian Kasi ascertains that “this is with the values of making sure everyone in this partnership gets equity development.”
This was after Police FC and the bank entered a partnership worth Shs10 until the end of the 2018/2019 season but with the hope that a better deal will be negotiated.
“We have been looking at ways of how we can strengthen our relationship (with Police FC) and we agreed that we need to start somewhere,” Kasi told journalist at the Police headquarters in Naguru on Tuesday afternoon.
“Shs10M a modest contribution but it’s a partnership that is going to be reviewed on a monthly basis and see how it works out,” he added.
According to Kasingye, this looks like peanuts from the outside but actually a very great deal for Police FC especially when one has observed how the team struggles with daily logistics.
“Our biggest challenge is the day to day operations at the field especially during training and this comes in handy, it’s surely going to take some weight off our shoulders,” Kasingye said.
It’s the first time in the story of the club that dates back to four decades to get into a partnership with any company, something that is today viewed as a very huge milestone.
