Bullets FC have cashed in on TNM ‘Sapota Mapeto’ Promotion after registering the highest number of SMS votes from their supporters to earn a K2.1 million.
TNM Marketing and Sponsorship Manager, Limbani Nsapato, disclosed that Bullets supporters sent 80,000 SMS to raise the K2 million for the team within four weeks.
Nsapato applauded Bullets for reaching an overwhelming 80,000 after the club embarked on a massive campaign for their supporters to vote for the team.
He said during the first two weeks Bullets registered 28,000 SMS to raise about K500,000.
“I would like to commend Bullets executive team for taking the initiative to sensitise their supporters to take part in the SMS campaign,” Nsapato said.
“This has reflected on the overwhelming response in the other two weeks of the month. So I would like to encourage teams to urge their supporters to vote for their teams benefit from the campaign.”
Bullets chairman Kondi Msunga attributed the development to trust and confidence that the fans had in the current leadership.
“I am happy that our supporters have supported us in this SMS campaign because they know that we will use the money for the intended purpose,” Msungama said.
“We don’t owe players outstanding allowances as it used to be the case in the past.”
Mighty Wanderers also registered the second highest votes of around 40,000 SMS to earn over K1 million while Silver Strikers, known to have patriotic fans registered only managed to raise K294,000 in the month.
TNM mobile phone users are required to send a SMS to their teams’ code at a cost of K40 in which K28 goes to the team.
The supporters also stand a chance to win various prizes ranging from TV sets, footballs, vuvuzelas, T-shirts among others during the bi-weekly and monthly draws.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
