Dynamos Football Club chairman, Isaiah Mupfurutsa, has attributed the club’s stability to their principal sponsors, Gold Leaf Tobacco.
Gold Leaf Tobacco is sponsoring DeMbare through its brand Remington Gold and has honoured all its commitments under the sponsorship deal.
Mupfurutsa said the club salutes its sponsors for their unwavering support during the coronavirus-induced crisis. He said:
The level of sanity, which is at Dynamos right now, cannot be attributed to our competence and capacity as Dynamos Football Club alone.
Rather, it has more to do with the support we are getting from our sponsors because there can be no club which can be stable when the financial situation is dire.
The fact that we are able to, at least, put food on the table for the players, and members of the staff has helped a lot in terms of our club’s stability.
Some major Premier Soccer League clubs are experiencing unparalleled financial challenges after their sponsors withdrew their support.
State-owned mobile network operator NetOne terminated their deal with CAPS United and Highlanders, in which they were paying the salaries of the players and coaches, leaving the clubs in limbo.
The Glamour Boys are known for their regular boardroom squabbles and player revolts but thanks to their sponsors, they have experienced a long period of tranquillity.
