Insurance Multi-National, Britam Insurance, have announced a partnership with Kratos Sports to boost Schools rugby.
The partnership will see Britam Insurance award the best performers (man of the match) in all the matches that will be broadcast live on Kratos Sports website. Each Man Of The Match will be awarded with a medal and a new pair of boots.
Speaking about the new venture, Mr Lutakome Humphrey, Head Of Marketing at Britam said, “Britam is glad to identify with the sport of rugby and more so at the grassroots level.”
“These young lads are the reason we have continuous supply into the national team and rewarding their efforts from this stage is a boost we are glad to be part of.”
The first recipient of the Britam award was Light Academy’s Kenneth Kamukama who was chosen as the most outstanding performer in his team’s home victory against Makerere College School.
“The more partners we can have on board, the better for the game,” said Maurice Aliganyira, CEO of Kratos Sports.
“Schools rugby is where it all starts to get serious for rugby players and having Britam with us on the journey to identifying Uganda’s next stars, brings us joy. We look forward to working with them extensively to promote Schools Rugby.”
