Director Zawadi Services explained that the uniting factor of Onduparaka FC for
the West Nile region is a key factor for their partnership.

Meanwhile Benjamin Nyakuni, the Chairman Onduparaka FC

the people of West Nile to make/build and consume their own products,

out; buy and consume it. //
Mercy Munduru, the head of marketing and sponsorship
for Onduparaka FC welcomed the deal saying it’s a huge relief of financial
burden on the Club in terms of travel expenses.

Adams Lematia, the Spokesperson for Onduparaka FC said
it has always been Onduparaka’s dream to partner with local business entities
and they are glad that Zawadi Services has accorded them that dream.
“This sponsorship is timely considering that
transportation has been a key challenge for the Club with each away game costing
about UGX 2,400,000 return trip and yet the Club spends about UGX 67,200,000 on
transport alone per season,” he added.
The Partnership will run from October 18, 2019 to
October 18, 2020 with a possibility of renewal.
