Japanese car dealers Be Forward, who are extending their operations to Malawi, have delayed the announcement officially that they have a signed a sponsorship deal with Mighty Wanderers FC.
Wanderers chairman George Chamangwana and General Secretary Mike Butao downplayed reports that it is a done deal.
“We wrote a proposal to them and we are still waiting for a feedback,” Butao said.
He played down assertions that there is a blue smoke to clinch the deal but remained
Nomads were among the three teams competing for the sponsorship. Others were Big Bullets and Epac FC.
Nyasa Times sources at Lali Lubani Road, the base for the Nomads indicate that the sponsorship deal has been signed for 10 years.
Sources said the deal agreement had some hiccups as Be Forward demanded the club to use black and orange colours representing its corporate image but later agree that the Nomads should remain the blues.
Be Forward, which sells second-hand vehicles, has offered to sponsor the blues for about K66 million per season an agreement of an increment every season.
