Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has revealed that there will be a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) campaign attached to the 46th Stanbic Uganda Cup edition.
Like it has been the case in the last four years, the 2020 edition of the coveted annual knockout tournament will not be different.
FUFA Events Manager, Leila Nankya officially announced that the CSR drive for this year will be aimed at supporting the needy.
“Football is a game that unites us all regardless of our backgrounds, beliefs or status and as FUFA, we believe we can make a positive change in the society where we live. I, therefore, take this opportunity to announce that we shall have a CSR activity attached to this year’s edition.” said Nankya during the round of 16 draws held on Wednesday at FUFA House, Mengo.
“We call upon footballers to embrace this campaign like they have done in the last years. We have started collecting clothes and any other items that we shall give out to a school and hospital prior to the final. FUFA House and Stanbic Bank branches are the collection centres.”
It should be noted that the recipients of the items collected must be from the region that hosts the Stanbic Uganda Cup final. FUFA is yet to announce the region that will host this year’s final.
