Betway are back on the Ugandan football scene.

The betting house divorced from Arua-based Uganda Premier League side Onduparaka FC before the start of the current season after two years on the front of the famous green jersey.

No satisfactory reason was given from both sides.

The betting firm will now be unveiled as shirt sponsors for traditional giants Express FC in a deal set to be unveiled on Tuesday morning at Hotel Africana in Kampala, reliable sources have indicated.

Betway have also released an image with the colours red and green which all but indicate the deal is done and dusted. The betting firm will be added on the growing list of sponsorships with the six-time league champions such as Buganda Land Board, Equity Bank and Uganda Breweries Limited.

Express sit fifth on the log having picked up back to back wins, taking their tally of wins to three from six games along with two draws. They next face rivals and table leaders Vipers at home in Wankulukuku on Wednesday.
