Serena based NTV has Thursday, 23 January 2013 inked a three-year-long deal with the Uganda Rugby Union (URU) to elecast live games of the local league and three international rugby games.

The broadcasters will on a monthly basis relay two rugby matches — one live and another delayed and will also run a weekly magazine programme that will bring rugby enthusiasts up to speed on what is transpiring in the sport.

“Ugandan rugby has today reached a milestone by having selected rugby games broadcast live on local and regional TV which will open up our activities to the region thereby giving the game our sponsors additional brand value and exposure. “This partnership is unveiled in two categories that is Broadcasting rights  and Sponsorship for the Uganda Rugby Referees Society,” Andrew Owor, the Uganda Rugby Union chairman said.
