VOLLEYBALL–Bearly a month after the Aziz Damani family injected 50 million shillings into the National Vollyball league playoffs, the sport loving family has once again boosted the finals of the league with more cash.
This time round it is not a figure close to the one that was first injected but judging by the fact that its 10 million for only the finals, it shades a bigger picture on how huge a contribution the Aziz Damani family has made.
Announcing the package today morning at D’Mellos restaurant in Nakasero, Azaan Damani, son to Aziz, expressed joy that his family is working hand in hand with the Uganda Volleyball Federation to the betterment of the league and sport in general.
“We are happy to associate with volley ball and like we said earlier, we look foward to a longer partnership with the volleyball fraternity,”Azaan Damani said.
Patricia Ampumuza, the second vice president of the Uganda Volleyball Federation, commended the sport loving family who are also involved in other sport like Cricket and Football.
“Unlike in the past playoffs, this time round we have the honour of handing out cash prizes to the different teams and individuals that have stood out and its all thanks to the Aziz Damani family,” said a delighted Patricia who was representing Hadijah Namanda the President of Uganda volleyball Federation.
“The cash prize will hopefully spur on the teams and individuals to put up spirited performances and hence breath taking finals,” she said.
It is not hard to see why Aziz Damani injecting more money into the playoffs after the initial rounds went on smooth and fair attracting more crowds by the day and looking at the level of competition which seems to be at another level.
