Rio Ferdinand Visits Uganda
In the month of June, 2007 Uganda received England's Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand who came in with his father Julian Ferdinand on the invitation of Proline Soccer Academy Manager Mujib Kasule. This saw some Ugandan football players sharing a football pitch with London based Manchester United number 5, Rio Gavin Ferdinand. He also plays for the England national football team.
Apparently Ferdinand was invited to fundraise for a school, Proline Soccer Academy (PSA) whose focus is on sports and education and the target group would be a good number of children between the ages of 3 and 17 from underprivileged families.
Proline Soccer Academy should be complete before 2008 and in this way Uganda will be able to produce players similar to Didier Drogba playing in Europe.
The fundraising dinner that was held at Serena Hotel on the 18/Jun/2007 and graced by artists like Blu*3 and Juliana Kanyomozi raised over 20 Million Uganda Shillings. This money was raised through various auction items and the proceeds passed on to Proline Soccer Academy.
