Marketing Manager for FDH Ronald Chimchere said they were motivated by the team’s triumphant performance against Comoros.

“We are looking at the performance of the team we came in just because we are proud of the team,” Chimchere said.

“We want to give a tocken to the national team to empower them in the Cosafa.”

“It’s an obligation for  FDH Bank  to provide the support to the Flames whenever needed. We are the Flames’ official sponsor and felt the need to help the team as they travel to South Africa on Thursday. We are committed towards the relationship we share with the Football Association of Malawi regarding the Flames and hope to maintain it,” said  Chimchere.

However, he  appealed to the team to work hard during the tournament and bring the trophy home.

He said as sponsors, they will only feel appreciated if the team can put back the smiles on many Malawian soccer loving fans.

“Everyone knows that the team has been going through a bad patch. It’s now time to turn the corner and hope we can start with  the Cosafa Cup. You have the responsibility to restore the national pride by beating Tanzania on Saturday in your first game. The onus is on you and I believe you can do it for the nation,” said Chimchere.

Football Association of Malawi Commercial and Marketing Director Limbani Matola applauded FDH for the donation, which he said was a commitment to develop football in the country.

“We are extremely delighted that FDH has one more time come to support the national team as they had promised to sponsor the team for three years,” Matola said.

Malawi national football team coach Ronny Van Geneugden also commended the bank for the donation saying it shows that they have confidence in the team.

” I would like to thank FDH for the support they give to the national team. I am glad FDH is standing next tothe Flames and that they believe in the project,”he said.

 

The Flames have been paired with Tanzania, Mauritus and Angola  at this year’s COSAFA competition. Their first game will be against Tanzania.

To FDH Bank, thank you so much for bailing out our National Team.… Read more »
