League Sponsor StarTimes ‘Satisfied’ With Successful Season


Bruce Aogus, CEO of StarTimes, has expressed his pride and satisfaction following the successful conclusion of the 2023/24 Uganda Premier League season.

The season, noted for its intense finale, saw SC Villa crowned champions, edging out contenders BUL, Vipers, and Kitara on a dramatic final day.

“I take this opportunity on behalf of StarTimes to congratulate SC Villa, FUFA, and the media for a successful season,” Aogus stated.

“We are proud to be the official sponsor and broadcaster of Uganda’s prestigious men’s football league.”

StarTimes has been crucial in elevating the league’s profile through extensive broadcasting.

As the official title and broadcast sponsor, they secured a decade-long deal from the 2028/2029 season.

With a local sports channel, Sanyuka Prime, StarTimes set a new record by broadcasting 145 league matches live in a single season, including Villa’s decisive 2-0 victory over NEC.

Sanyuka Prime, exclusive to StarTimes, not only covers the Uganda Premier League but also features Bundesliga matches, popular movies, and other sports content. It is available on channels 251 and 238 for antenna and satellite decoders, respectively.

On the league finale, StarTimes subscribers also enjoyed extensive coverage of matches involving other title chasing teams. FUFA TV aired the Jinja derby between BUL and Busoga United, while BBS Terefayina covered Vipers’ clash with Mbarara City. Sanyuka Prime also provided real-time updates from the game between Kitara and Gaddafi.

The thrilling conclusion of the season was witnessed by key figures including Aogus, FUFA president Hon Moses Magogo, and Katikiro of Buganda Charles Peter Mayiga. SC Villa’s victory, which ended a 20-year championship drought, was secured by second-half goals from Charles Lwanga and Hakim Kiwanuka, underscoring a remarkable comeback for the historic club.
