With the new Uganda Premier League season around the corner the Equity Express Card, one that guarantees a fan free access to all the home games in a season has been officially launched.
Hundreds of fans and officials Friday lined up to get the card which costs as low as Shs 50,000 for access to all the 15 home matches at Mutesa II Wankulukuku Stadium in the entire season.
Club chairman Kiryowa “K.K” Kiwanuka praised Equity Bank, recently announced as the technological partner for the fans’ darling club. He called upon more fans to embrace the Equity – Express card as the club surges forward to go digital.
Mr. Kiwanuka rallied the fans; “We are transforming everything at the club in a digital format and minimizing use of cash for easy accountability of funds. I therefore urge the Red Army across the country to embrace the card.’
“We are so much glad to be associated with Express Football Club. The fans wherever they are should register for the Equity – Express card which will give them access to all the home matches,” said Mr. Phillip Otim, Equity Bank Uganda Marketing Manager.
The six time Uganda Premier League winners also launched a drive de-campaigning the “Mukwano Gwa Bangi Ndibba yokka” literally translated “Friends of many, football only” that denounces hooliganism.
