After two years of COVID-19 restrictions, the annual Insurance Industry Sports Gala finally saw the light of the day.
The Insurance Company of East Africa (ICEA) shrugged off competition from 19 other contenders to the throne before being crowned the winner of the 2022 Insurance Sports Gala held at St. Mary’s Stadium, Kitende.
The weekend games saw the 20 Insurance industry players swapped formal office wear for sports jerseys, before facing off in various disciplines, including Athletics, Netball, Basketball, Volleyball and Football.
By close of business ICEA Lion was joined on the podium by UAP Old Mutual as the 1st Runners Up and Prudential as the 2nd Runners Up respectively.
The annual Insurance Industry Sports Gala (games) were organized by the Insurance Regulatory Authority of Uganda, the Insurance Training College, the Uganda Insurers’ Association and the Insurance Brokers Association of Uganda with the theme “Championing Insurance through Sports and Wellness.” The theme is particularly fitting, given the parallel lines between the two disciplines that should in the first place be part and parcel of the same experience.
