It’s also a way of getting our brand and other brands to interact and engage with the youth creating relevance for our brands in their lives. PEPSI Cola to be particular has worked with cricket for years not just in Uganda but globally and we believe being part of this elite league is one way of continuing that partnership. We enjoy working with Uganda Cricket and we are in great support of their grass root programs, we have an exciting an idea to do with schools we shall roll out next year.
