“This comes at the most appropriate time as football will start this weekend with the knockout competition. For the team to do well it is critical to support the team and incentive them in monetary terms to ensure they focus on doing well on the field. We continue to call our corporate partners to bail us in this difficult times as football thrives on gate takings, but because of the new normal we have to develop ways to fund the sport. Today we stand proud to have a team which is ready to compete and reach the top notch of the game. I implore you to be inspired by yesteryear greats of this tram who include Stanford ‘Stix’ Mtizwa, Gift Makoni and Kamuriwo among others. The ZNA teams should be guided by the principles and norms of the army as we inculcate discipline and integrity within our players. The partnership should deepen with winning games and become good brand ambassadors of our sponsors. To our sponsors, we are confident that we will represent your business cause very well as we carry your brands when we play in stadia,” said Brigadier General Ephias Mahachi, Black Rhinos FC Representative
