DeMbare, Bosso Sakunda deals lapse

Sports Reporter

IT seems that the partnership between Sakunda Holdings and Dynamos and Highlanders may be coming to an end next month.

The clubs are yet to engage Sakunda Holdings in talks to initiate a partnership extension, and the decision will ultimately be made by Sakunda Holdings boss, Kudakwashe Tagwirei.

The partnership was established two years ago to promote the standards of domestic football, and injected life into the struggling clubs.

They were being shunned by players who found them financially unattractive and preferred mining backed clubs like FC Platinum, Manica Diamonds and Ngezi Platinum Stars.

Sakunda Holdings offered a sponsorship package worth over US$5.3 million for both day-to-day operations, salaries, and signing-on fees to the two clubs.

These two giants received $140 000 worth of branded kits from Sakunda after launching their partnership.

The expectation was that the two giants were going to regain their waning glory using the financial muscle from Sakunda Holdings.

Sadly, both are still claiming to be rebuilding, and are asking for patience from their fans and stakeholders.

Sakunda had also promised to provide annual incentives for any one of the two clubs that wins the Premier Soccer League and goes on to participate in the CAF Champions League.

“At the moment we have not started any negotiations with any team regarding the renewal of this deal.

“The contracts are expiring this December and at the moment we are not in a position to hint on anything,” said a key member in the Sakunda Holdings camp.
