Calls
for the Masvingo’s corporate world to fund the high-flying Masvingo United
Football Club (FC) in their 2019 campaign seem to be reaping fruits, with a few
companies and individuals in the city recently making some donations.
Byword
Motors, owned by businessman Stanley Kondongwe, unveiled a new Kappa-branded kit
to the club at Mucheke Stadium on Monday, June 17, 2019.
Byword
manager and representative at the kit handover ceremony, Ephraim Museva said
the company’s wish was for the team to get promoted to the topflight Premier
Soccer League (PSL).
He
promised that Byword will increase support for the team in the future.
“We
wish your bid for promotion bears fruit so that we have premier league action
in Masvingo and we will make sure we scale up our support for the team. Despite
the economic challenges, our aim is to have a PSL team in Masvingo and we want
to be associated with such kind of success,” said Museva.
Masvingo
United Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Phillip Shumba expressed gratitude for
the donation and promised that the team will fight to bag maximum points in
their upcoming replay match against Grayham FC in Ruwa this Sunday, June 23.
“Byword
motors are our all-weather friends and the company’s director Mr. Kondongwe is
a man of his words. He has set himself apart from others who have not been
accommodating to us.
“We
want to dedicate our upcoming match to Byword Motors so we are going to Harare targeting
maximum points. It is also our wish to get promotion at the end of this
season,” said Shumba.
Other
donations presented at the ceremony included match balls donated by former Una
Una forward Martin Vengesayi, cones from Thorglot Investments and RTGS$1500
which was channeled towards players welfare.
Zifa
provincial chairman Nobioth Magwizi also donated RTGS$1000 which paid players
winning bonuses for the game against Ruwa Pro Group a few weeks ago.
Una
Una has been on a good run under new coach Ezekiel Mutoda and are currently on
fourth position, a mere nine points shy of log leaders Tenax with a game in
hand against bottom-placed Grayham which is set to be replayed this Sunday.
Zifa
this weekend suspended PSL and Division One action to allow football fans to
rally behind the Warriors who are currently in Egypt for the Afcon finals.
