UPL deal falls through for SBL

It is over seven months since Sports Broadcasting Limited (SBL), were unveiled at Kampala Serena Hotel as new television sponsors for the Uganda Premier League (UPL), Uganda Cup and the Fufa Big League starting June 1.

Due to financial complications, SBL lost the bargaining power to take the rights to show this League. The broadcaster also stated that they could not get the required manpower or even the equipment for production.

SBL is a television company with a license to produce content but not broadcast, was believed to be exploring options of getting a channel off one of the Pay TV companies or have the games shown on a free-to-air channel or a local television.
