Fort Portal: Managed by Wasswa Bossa, Fort Portal based Tooro United F.C. has received 1XBET as new team sponsor-TheSpy Uganda reports exclusively.
This has been confirmed by the Fort Portal re-elected Member of Parliament, Hon Alex Ruhunda who has revealed via his famous social media platforms that today’s morning the team has received a new kit from ”new sponsor 1XBET” that included jerseys and balls.
According to the cheque given to Tooro United, 1XBET has kicked off the sponsorship with Ugandan shillings one hundred thirteen million, eight hundred and sixty thousand (UGX113, 860, 000).
”It was a very colourful ceremony that depicts a new era in Tooro football. We continue to buy the kits to boost the club,” said Hon. Ruhunda.
Ruhunda also announced thus; ”On Sunday we have a do or die match to determine going to the premier league.”
Tooro United Football Club dearly missed the opportunity to seal a direct slot to the Uganda Premier League on matchday 13 of the 2021 FUFA Big League.
A goalless home draw with Luwero United postponed the celebration parties and festivities for Tooro United who only required maximum points to seal the feat.
Referee Ronald Kirangwa pointed to the spot deep in the added minutes after 90 minutes but on two occasions; Tooro United missed from 12 yards – thanks to the effort of Luwero United goalkeeper Herman Mugoya.
First, Denis Ojara missed the initial penalty before the second one was also missed by Isaac Mpagi upon retaking after the goalkeeper had hurriedly moved off his line before the kicker’s shot.
Tooro United has another chance to make it count when they host Kigezi Home Boyz this weekend at the Mutesa II Wankulukuku Stadium in Kabowa.
