Stanbic Bank the main sponsors of the Uganda Cup has announced it will pay the prize money to the top teams despit cancellation of the 2019/2020 season.
The federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) last week announced it had cancelled the 2019/20 season of the Stanbic Bank Uganda Cup declaring it null and void with no winner due to the continued COVID-19 restrictions on sports.
According to FUFA President Eng. Moses Magogo, the Federation had hoped to complete the season but due to the continued restrictions on sports, the Federation reluctantly decided to declare the 2019/20 season of the Stanbic Bank Uganda Cup null and void with no winner.
Speaking to Journalists in Kampala today, Stanbic Bank said despite the cancellation, it will honour its commitment by paying prize monies to clubs that had progressed to the Round of 16 and the Quarter Finals.
Stanbic Bank’s Head of Marketing & Communications Daniel Ogong said it was unfortunate that the season had to be cancelled as it promised to be the most exciting one yet.
The prize money for the Cancelled 2019/20 season will be paid out as follows:
The six teams that qualified for the Quarter Finals will each receive UGX 6 million. These include Proline FC, KCCA FC, Kyetume FC, Light SS FC, Kitara FC and Kataka FC.
The six teams that were knocked out at the Round of 16 will each receive UGX 3 million and these include Kiboga Young FC, Dove FC, Maroons FC, UPDF FC, Tooro Utd FC and Free Stars FC.
And the four teams that were yet to play their Round of 16 matches will share the prize money for their ties each will receive UGX 1.5 million. The teams are URA vs Wakiso Giants and SC Villa vs Mbarara City
