The long awaited 2019 Nile Special Uganda Sports Press Association gala is on.

The country’s prestigious and most celebrated social gathering will be held on November 18, 2020 at Serena Hotel.

It will also be a special moment for USPA; as the association will be celebrating

Its 50th anniversary. This is a key milestone in our history of promoting unity and

brotherhood among sports journalists.

“It is with mixed emotions that we confirm that the annual USPA Gala will go

ahead this year. On one hand, it is fantastic news that together with our partner

Nile Special, we were able to forge a way forward and ensure that the continuity of the gala is not broken in spite of the pandemic,” Kanyomozi said.

He also added that; “But on the other hand, there’s a tinge of sadness that not everybody

that we would have loved to be present will be invited. We are holding the event

with extra caution and guidance to ensure that we adhere to the Ministry of

Health guidelines.”

The Nile Special brand manager Francis Nyende echoed the brand’s continued

commitment to the development of sports in Uganda and acknowledgement of the

outstanding personalities each year.

“This year has posed many challenges to everyone and every sector globally. Yet this should not stop us from celebrating the sports men and women that hoisted  national flag high in 2019. Their feats are still vivid in our hearts. You deserve your crowns,” said Mr. Nyende.

Sports personality of the year nominees are Joshua Cheptegei, Halima Nakaayi and

Emmanuel Okwi.

Sports fans will also have the chance to vote their outstanding sports personality in

the Fans Choice category. To vote; visit this website:
