Wanderers Scare, Sponsor Drops Hint of Terminating Sponsorship
Mighty Be Forward Wanderers Fc says it will embark on a search for a new sponsor following news that current sponsors Be-Forward have notified the club on its stand to stop sponsoring them if covid19 continues to surge.
According to Wanderers General secretary Victor Maunde this is a setback but was quick to point out the need to start looking for alternatives.
Meanwhile, sports analyst Humphrey Mvula has warned of financial challenges ahead for the Lali Lubani boys but however urged them to start preparing for the future.
Earlier this year the Lali Lunbani Boys were told by its sponsors Be-Forward that they wanted to freeze its sponsorship towards the super league outfit for three months but the nomad's hierarchy convinced the car dealers company to stay which resulted in a 60 percent cut in monthly allocation.
It never stops to rain but pours at the Blantyre giants as it has emerged that Be-Forward has now notified Wanderers of its intention to terminate sponsorship contract which is due to expire in 2022 if COVID cases continue to surge.
According to Wanderer's general secretary Victor Maunde there is no cause for alarm saying Wanderers is Brand that can attract other sponsors if at all Be-Forward decides to terminate the sponsorship contract.
"We are looking at this development as a blessing in disguise because we are now free to start courting other potential sponsors.
"We will sit down as a team and reflect on the matter but the supporters and everyone else at the club should not be worried because we have a team that can search and find a sponsor within and outside the country," Maunde said.
Meanwhile, Sports analyst Humphrey Mvula has Urged the nomads to consider commercializing the club which he says will help to attract the would-be sponsors.
"I don't think wanderers will have difficulties finding a replacement if Be-Forward decides to go but there are things that need urgent attention before they (Wanderers) go on the hunt for companies to partner with.
"They must first organize themselves and go on a commercialization drive, that way it will be easy for sponsors to come in. they must run the club as a limited company, people must buy shares."
Strong rumors are connecting FDH Bank with the super league outfit over a possible partnership.
