Be Forward to withdraw Wanderers sponsorship

Japanese used vehicles dealer Be Forward Limited has made a decision to stop its sponsorship to Mighty Wanderers from next year.

Nomads to lose Be Forward Sposnorship

Be Forward sponsor the Nomads to the tune of $200 000 (about K150 million) per year.

But recently had to cut the club’s sponsorship by 50 percent; due to the effects of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic which has stalled sports and business globally.

Now it’s confirmed the Japanese used car dealers will stop bankrolling the Lali Lubani Road outfit from next year.

Local representative for Be Forward Limited, Mike Butao, confirmed withdraw of sponsorship.

“The position of Be Forward Limited is that from next year they will stop sponsoring the club to concentrate in recovery having been hit hard by the effects of Covid-19 pandemic to their business,” he said.

But Butao, a former Nomads general secretary said “there is still room for negotiations.”

Nomads chairperson Symon Sikwese confirmed about the development but said the club’s executive have no access to the sponsor as they have to go through Butao, an arrangement he described as “weird.”

Sikwese said the club’s executive committee will meet to strategise.

What happens to the orange on Wanderers team colours. Alas, the folly of changing team colours to suit the sponsors.

Butao is a hero asaaaa !! kkķkkk
As soon as he was booted out of the Noma family due to his alleged involvement in money scam , he felt it duty bound to penalise the club by telling the sponsors to withdraw their sponsorship
Tit for tat !!

Not only weird but stupid as well. How can a big team like wanderers have access to the President of the country Mulupare and fail to talk direct to sponsors?
This arrangement leaves a lot to be desired. Something fishy

This is indeed weird. Looking at the situation, it seems Butao is controlling the whole situation where he has a special and big interest where he is benefiting individually. Wanderers should look for other avenues to find sponsors within the country like their traditional rivals Nyasa Big Bullets.
