During the 2023/24 season, under the sponsorship by betPawa, futsal’s main playing venue the Old Kampala Sports Arena was renovated, giving it a fresh look. Also, the 12 teams that took part in the league were given a new brand identity through new kits and football gear such as balls and a digital clock.

“We have had a season where, through digitization, disputes were a thing of the past because of the digital clock which was used professionally to keep the track of time per
match,” said Futsal Association of Uganda President, Hamzah Jjunju.
