BEVERAGE company Delta has announced a new three-year sponsorship deal for Zimbabwe’s Premier Soccer League (PSL), which will provide US$1 130 000 per season, officially marking the return of domestic football activity in the country in more than a year.
Through the Castle Lager brand, Delta will bankroll the PSL championship for US$700 000 with the remainder going towards two cup competitions – the Castle Challenge Cup and the Chibuku Super Cup.
The two knockout competitions will be run at a cost of US$55 000 and US$375 000 respectively.
“Delta Beverages is excited to announce the Zimbabwe Premier Soccer League sponsorship package for brands Castle Larger and Chibuku Super Cup for the 2021-2023 period,” read a Delta statement.
“2021 will be an exciting season for all, with various activities lined up to restart our game in Zimbabwe despite the Covid-19 challenges.”
Delta, however, will disburse the funds in local currency “at the bank rate of the day.”
Competition is set to start on 22 May. Zimbabwean domestic football was last played at the end of the 2019 season. It will now resume after a thorough process in which stakeholders were challenged to adhere to Covid-19 preventive measures. – STAFF WRITER
