Football club asks Umvoti to sponsor

2017-07-19 06:01

AT last Friday’s Umvoti Executive Committee meeting one of the items raised for consideration was a request from Umvoti Football Club for sponsorship in terms of accommodation and finance.

In a submission, team manager Mr B. Msomi of Dalton said the cost per season of running the club is R1 692 000.

This includes players’  monthly incentives of R1 100 000 etc.

The club was provided with interim assistance in 2015, in the form of a house, by the municipality but claimed a “better” house was required and appealed that they be permitted to use the house on Townlands to accomodate the players.

Umvoti Football Club manager said that the club which has been operating for two years, is the only hope for Umvoti football lovers to have a team participating in the national first division. The team,which has been operating on a limited budget, has done very well in the past two seasons. The management also requested support towards the running of the team to fulfil their dream of playing professionally and submitted such an achievement would contribute in stimulating the local economy.The matter was briefly discussed by the executive and was not approved at this stage.
