Despite their poor start to the 2022 season, TNM Super League giants Mighty Wanderers can afford a smile after winning a hefty sponsorship contract with Mukuru, one of South Africa’s top financial institutions.
According to a statement released by Mukuru Chief Executive Officer Andy Jury, the team will now be called Mighty Mukuru Wanderers, and other financial details of the deal will be made public later.
The contract, according to Jury, was made in order to raise Mukuru’s brand awareness while also contributing to the growth of football in Malawi.
“We are excited to have struck a deal, in consultation with the Football Association of Malawi, with one of Malawi’s top Super League teams, the Mighty Wanderers,” Jury said in the statement.
He added that “Mukuru is a business that puts the customer at the centre of everything we do and our essence and passion lie in helping to solve problems for Africa’s emerging consumers and uniting people across the world.”
Meanwhile Nomads Board Secretary Humphreys Mvula has confirmed the deal saying it is part of the team’s commercialization efforts to bring it back to its former glory.
The nomads have had a pathetic start to the new season, sitting seventh in the league with a meager ten points from seven games, having already lost three times.
