Uganda Cranes and Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Denis Onyango has landed a one-year endorsement deal with Sports betting company Gal Sport Betting (GSB).
The partnership which will last for one year will see Onyango act as GSB’s brand ambassador, appearing in a range of media engagements and commercials on behalf of GSB as the company looks at leveraging from the shot stopper’s influence not only in Uganda but across the continent.
Onyango’s brand is also expected to be used by GSB to engage the community through social sports campaigns designed to bring sportsmen and women together around growing responsibly in the world of sports.
“I have always set the bar high for myself with everything I do,” Onyango said before adding; “But to now be a Brand Ambassador for Gal Sport Betting, makes me contented that I have progressed to a new level.”
“To me, the Gal Sport Betting brand stands for honesty, transparency, responsibility and patriotism. I don’t do things when my heart is not into it.”
“I am excited to be given the mantle to help define what GSB stands for and means to both the old and new generation of sports fans in Uganda,” the 2016 Best African Player of the Year added.
GSB say that the move to partner with Onyango is focused on supporting sports talent development and inspiring sports lovers in Uganda to express themselves with passion, optimism, strength and style.
“We share a passion for developing sports and supporting Ugandan talent,” GSB’s Brand Manager Paul Kigula said.
“And we believe this new partnership will yield amazing results for all sports fans in Uganda and across Africa.”
“We are thrilled to welcome Onyango to the Gal Sport Betting family. Denis (Onyango) will love and cherish every moment with us,” he concluded.
