NCS advises federations/associations to be creative and seek sponsorships

NCS General Secretary Nicholas Muramagi
NCS has commended Uganda Woodball Federation for stepping out of their comfort zones and woo sponsors to supplement government support extended to the sport.

While flagging off the national men and women’s teams that will take part in the first Beach Woodball World Cup Championships Indonesia, NCS general secretary Nicholas Muramagi said that contrary financial outcry from federation/associations, leadership remains the biggest issue in Ugandan sport.

“Problem is Ugandan sports is more of leadership issue and not necessarily funding. Federations/associations need to open up and get partnerships, sponsorships and build network of corporate companies that can supplement efforts of government,” Muramagi said.

He caused an applause when he commended the Woodball federation for achieving what traditional sports federations/associations have not achieved in as many years of they have been in existence in Uganda.

“The woodball federation has only been around for nine years but you have achieved what some sports federations which have been here even before Uganda got independent have done. It is because of your good leadership,” Muramagi said.

He said that in next few years to come, federations/associations will be compelled to ensure descent facilitation for national team before it travels out of the country.  


Uganda Woodball Federation used the same function at the MTN Arena, Lugogo to unveil a Ush30m annual sponsorship for the next three years from Buganda Land Board.

Uganda Woodball Federation president Mark Kayongo and Buganda Land Board boss Kiwalabye Male in the presence of Muramagi signed a three-year sponsorship package that will see the regional land board fund the woodball league for the next three seasons.
