We are glad to have this opportunity from FUFA. The skills we have acquired will enable us develop our club in different areas. However as a club, we have tried our best to practice what we have been presented with today since joining the top flight in 2013.  We have been far ahead of some UPL Clubs concerning administration and good Club Governance’ noted Bright Stars FC Club Chairman Ronald Mutebi
