Chapungu FC sponsorship deal
GWERU - Chapungu FC has received an US$80 000 shot in the arm from mobile operator NetOne which will help steer the team forward and take care of the players' allowances.
Speaking at the handover ceremony, NetOne Chief Executive Officer Lazarus Muchenje said they saw if fit to assist the club financially as it is the biggest in Midlands but going down due to financial constraints.
"We have sponsored Chapungu and Black Rhinos FC to the tune of $80 000 and these funds are meant to cushion the team for the remainder of the season with some funds to be channeled towards the players' bonuses.
"So this is the start of a fruitful journey that as NetOne we believe will see both institutions flourishing," said Muchenje.
The minister of State for Midlands Provincial Affairs, Owen Ncube, thanked NetOne for the gesture and commended the company for its partnership with various stakeholders in the community.
"With you today is a company which continues to support and sponsor sports and am deeply humbled by the move done by NetOne to Chapungu FC here in Gweru," said Ncube.sport
