Sponsors of the country’s top flag league, TNM have rolled out a national campaign aimed at engaging and wooing football fans to patronize the ongoing Sapota Mapeto Promotion.
The campaigns begun on Saturday with supporters of defending champions Big Bullets at Sports Council premises just before the kick of their match against airborne rangers.
During the interface meeting with Bullets followers, TNM Public Relations and Sponsorship Manager Limbani Nsapato urged the supporters to support their team more especially at a time the team has no sponsor.
“This is your opportunity to support your team as a contribution to Malawi football. BB did well in the Sapota Mapeto last season and I have hope that this time around you will do better as well,” said Nsapato.
Apart from supporting their team, fans also stand to win different prizes.
“We have set aside 1.5 million for the first team that will register the first 300 thousand sms,” he disclosed.
Individual monthly prizes include K200,000 cash, Flames replica jerseys, airtime, handsets and a 40 inch Samsung flat tv.
Nsapato further said TNM will engage all 15 teams contesting in the flagship league.
In his remarks Chairperson for Bullets fans, Stone Mwamadi assured TNM that the People’s Team followers will continue patronizing the promotion.
“Sapota Mapeto is our own and will continue from where stopped last season. We can only show our loyalty and support to the club by fully participating in the promotion and maintain our good record in as far this promotion is concerned,” said Mwamadi.
While Judith Nyambo lauded TNM for the interface saying it had opened a good relationship between sponsors and supporters.
“In the past supporters were sidelined in various activities but this interface meeting has shown that we are appreciated as supporters. We assure you TNM that we will support the promotion as we look forward to winning more prizes” said Nyambo, also Bullets follower.
Sapota Mapeto promotion was launched in 2013 with an aim of assisting supper league teams to generate revenue through its supporters.
In the last year’s promotion Big Bullets got K9 million.
