Vipers Sports Club president Lawrence Mulindwa has called out to the football fraternity to spare a thought for his contribution towards local football especially those that under look his work towards Ugandan football.
Mulindwa made the comments during his club’s unveiling of new club partners Kansai Plascon to it’s growing lineage of sponsors in a colourful event at the club premises in Kitende on Monday morning.
The deal worth four hundred million will run for two years with a possible year of extension.
Kansai Plascon becomes the official paint partners to the four-time league champions and will take the space at the back of the Vipers jersey below the shirt number.
Asked about how a relief the deal is to the club during these COVID times, the club president said; “We at Vipers are here to compete and remain relevant in the game.”
“What we have done as a club in this short period since promotion will take some years for other clubs to achieve, but that’s okay because the game still grows.”
The honorary FUFA president was quick to remind the public about how his facility at the St. Mary’s Stadium has contributed to the beautiful game.
“What I do does not only benefit the club but the whole nation at large,” Mulindwa said.
“If the national team is playing from here (St. Mary’s Stadium) these days, KCCA FC is also using the stadium for their continental games, Masaza final is here this Saturday all on a privately owned stadium.”
“Surely, where can you find such a person who thinks and loves the game as I do. So don’t praise me when am dead, start now,” he stated.
Vipers are currently leading the log with twenty four points from ten games and still unbeaten, a feat they only share with close competitor Express FC.
