NBL has undertaken to support the National Teams’ preparation for the 2024 Summer Olympics by committing sponsorship funds amounting to UGX 200,000,000/= (Uganda Shillings Two Hundred Million) of which UGX
120,000,000/= (Uganda Shillings One Hundred Twenty Million) shall be in cash and UGX 80,000,000/= (Uganda Shillings Eighty Million) in product/in kind.

On 26 July 2024, Uganda will be among the 206 countries and territories participating in the 2024 Olympic Games which will attract over 15,000 athletes and viewed by over 4 Billion people all over the world on different media platforms.

The last games Uganda participated in were the Tokyo 2020 Olympics where Uganda won 2 Gold Medals 1 Silver and 1 Bronze by Joshua Cheptegei, Peruth Chemutai, and Jacob Kiplimo.

The UOC is proud to associate with NBL and such support will greatly help athletes who are already in camp for training and at the same time, the sponsorship is focused on fan engagement such as watch parties where Ugandans will be able to watch the Games from the different selected locations across the country.

Team Uganda preparation efforts are complemented by the Government to participate in the Games from 26 July –11 August 2024. However, the resources available have been boosted by the support of Nile Breweries.

We would encourage more partners to support the general preparations of Team Uganda so that the athletes prepare well to represent the country with dignity.
