In a groundbreaking collaboration, Lyca Mobile Uganda and the Uganda Cricket Association (UCA) have forged a strategic alliance aimed at bolstering the sports landscape in the country.
Lyca Mobile has committed to playing a crucial role in elevating the skill sets of Uganda Cricket, providing financial support and facilitating access to international coaching experts for both the men’s and women’s teams.
This partnership follows recent triumphs for the national teams, notably the Cricket Cranes securing their first-ever qualification for the T20 World Cup in the West Indies and USA later this year.
Additionally, the women’s team, the Victoria Pearls, has advanced to the Global World Cup Qualifiers scheduled for April in Dubai, UAE.
Alirajah Subaskaran, Group Chairman of Lyca Mobile, expressed excitement about the collaboration, stating, “We are thrilled to support the Uganda Cricket Association as we believe it is a partnership that aligns perfectly with our values and what we stand for as a company.”
Jackson Kavuma, UCA Acting CEO, anticipates a transformative impact on Ugandan cricket, saying, “This collaboration is poised to be a transformative force for Cricket in Uganda, with Lyca’s support expected to have a lasting impact on the sport’s landscape.”
The event was attended by high-profile figures including State Minister for Sports Hon Peter Ogwang, State Minister for ICT Hon Joyce Nabbosa Ssebugwawo, and State Minister for Foreign Affairs Hon Henry Okello Oryem. Officials from Lyca Mobile were also present to mark the initiation of this promising partnership.
