Allan Ssewanyana, Fufa in a bitter feud over sponsorship money

Katwe United FC chairman Allan Ssewanyana is yet again in a bitter grudge with the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (Fufa).

The Fufa Big League side is yet to receive their StarTimes sponsorship money yet other teams have already received theirs. 

According to Allan Ssewanyana, the Federation has delayed channeling their money to the account for no apparent reason.

The federation has already given the sponsorship packages to all Uganda Premier League (UPL) and Fufa Big League clubs.

“Katwe United Football Club are yet to receive their money allocated by the sponsor StarTimes,” Ssewanyana was quoted saying before adding.

“We submitted every detail of the club including the correct account number but the money is yet to be reflected onto our accounts,” he added.

Ssewanyana went on to warn that if Fufa fails to pay them, he will drag them to courts of law to help them

“For a long time, I have been patient as we await that money. If the patient falls out, I will go to the courts of law to help me,” he noted.

Fufa responds to Ssewanyana’s allegations

Meanwhile, Fufa deputy CEO in charge of football, Decolas Kiiza, claims that Katwe United are yet to receive their money because they submitted a wrong account number to the federation.

“Katwe United FC have not received their payment because the account details they submitted are for Katwe Holdings Limited.”

“Then, they are yet to correct this anomaly as advised by the finance department,” Kiiza said.

Each club in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League is entitled to USh 68,000,000 per season from the sponsorship kitty.

However, each club from Fufa Big League is supposed to get USh10, 000,000 per season from sponsors.

All football activities in the country are still halted and all leagues and cups will have to wait until at least May 5th to hear about a possible resumption.
