Sunday News (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Sports Re­porter

THE Zim­babwe Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion South­ern re­gion Five-A-Side soc­cer league got a timely shot in the arm when a lo­cal com­pany, Im­pact Min­ing Sup­pli­ers spon­sored them with prizes.

Im­pact Min­ing Sup­pli­ers helped the fi­nan­cially strug­gling Five-A-Side league through up­ping the stakes in terms of com­pe­ti­tion among play­ers. Chair­man of the league, Phi­lani Banda said that the spon­sor­ship will come a long way in en­cour­ag­ing and giv­ing hope to the play­ers.

“The play­ers lacked mo­ti­va­tion in the league be­cause they re­quired an in­cen­tive which pushes them to play at their best abil­ity,” he said.

League win­ners will walk away with prize money with other ac­co­lades in­cluded for the best player and coach of the sea­son. The sup­port does not end there as all the league teams will each re­ceive kits and balls for play­ing matches.

“An in­cen­tive has been of­fered for the league win­ners and prizes for in­di­vid­u­als, in­clud­ing kits and soc­cer balls for the teams. Im­pact Min­ing Sup­pli­ers have shown us great sup­port and their in­ter­est in the de­vel­op­ment of the sport,’’ said Banda.

Im­pact Min­ing Sup­pli­ers of­fi­cial Nh­lanhla Sibanda con­firmed that they will con­tinue work­ing with the league as part of giv­ing back to the com­mu­nity.
