He adds that despite Uganda Qualifying for Various Netball World Cups in the past, the game is still struggling on the local front.

“Netball is a big sport, it has been local, and we need to go international, even if we have been going to world cup, there was something missing, publicity and marketing has been seriously bad. So we need rebranding to see that we reach to the international level, the sky will be the limit.”

Mulindwa announced his commitment to the sport following two years of no show.

“I sponsored the league for four years but I was just helping, there was no foundation, no structures, no progress, I think that’s why I pulled out. But with this new arrangement, they have Secretariat, marketing team, we can join hands to see that the game grows.

I am ready to put money in Netball to see that its a great game. Netball is an easy sport to manage, only urge media to also give us support.”
