Kratos Sports Africa, Uganda Rugby Union Team Up to Promote Schools Rugby

Kratos Sports Africa under their rugby department, Kratos Rugby has announced a five-year partnership with the Uganda Schools Rugby Association (USRA) which will be totaling to UGX 100 million.

“We are glad to have a new partner in Kratos. We have been toiling to stage this competition every year but with Kratos joining, it shows that we are actually growing,” said Valence Bizimana, the Chairperson of USRA at a press conference held at Paliv Spices Restaurant in Bugolobi.

“Kratos is coming on board for Schools Rugby because we believe we need to identify our stars when they are just sprouting, rather than meet them when they are already made. And, our initial deal is for five years, worth 100 million but it is very much subject to go longer,” said
