Ugandan sports news platform Pulse Sports Uganda announced the acquisition of Football256, a locally grown news platform that was established about four years ago.
Football256, which churned out content for both the Ugandan and international markets, was started on November 18, 2018. Football256 felt a sale was the right decision as the buyers carry bigger ambitions for sports in the country, region, continent and globally.
“It was not an easy decision, but we are confident it was the right decision at the right time, especially when you, look at the goals and objectives of Pulse Sports,” said Football256 co-founder Clive Kyazze. “Football256 was started on the foundation, giving young sports journalists a chance to showcase their abilities and change lives along the way, areas we have succeeded in.”
Kyazze added: “We shall always cherish memories (good and bad), the milestones and achievements we achieved over the years and everyone who was part of the journey.”
The Pulse Sports team has recruited part of the Football 256 team to maintain part of the culture that made the former excel at the top for years. Pulse Sports has also secured the services of the most potent writers in the country – Brian Aheebwa, Emanzi Ndyamuhaki, Peter Tabu, Fred Mwambu, and Shafic Kiyaga, to provide more comprehensive and unrivalled quality content.
Football256 urged its customers to embrace Pulse Sports because it comes with an even better experience, including international sports news, stats, live results, and videos.
