Stanbic Bank Uganda’s contract with the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) will expire at the end of current season.

Stanbic Bank Uganda have been the title sponsors of the Uganda Cup competition since 2017.

According to reliable sources, Stanbic Bank are willing to renew the contract with the Federation but there’s a big difference of opinion between the parties when it comes to valuation.

FUFA think that the value has now increased with more games being broadcasted on TV.
