SuperSport clear air on USL



SuperSport International have moved to clear the air regarding their sponsorship of the Uganda Super League Limited (USL).

Speculation was ripe on social media and Ugandan press that the South African-based broadcasters, who last year signed a five-year $5m deal to telecast USL matches, had pulled out of the contract.

But in an official statement released on Tuesday evening, SuperSport have dismissed those rumours while acknowledging the difficult times Ugandan football is going through.

“As a football rights holder in Uganda, SuperSport is concerned about administrative problems affecting Ugandan football,” it reads.

“We are monitoring the situation carefully and considering our position. SuperSport will not comment publicly on speculation in that regard for various reasons, including legal issues.”

The animosity arose when the local federation, Fufa, apparently withdrew the mandate to run the league from the USL.

USL still has a running contract with SuperSport and insist they are legally running the league.
