Bantu seal massive sponsorship deal

Bantu seal massive sponsorship deal

MAFETENG – Econet Premier League champions, Bantu, on Tuesday unveiled a cool new Sentebale Funeral Services sponsorship worth M600 000 over three seasons.
The deal will give Bantu M200 000 per season until 2022 and revives a long-standing relationship between the Mafeteng giants and local business, Sentebale.

Speaking at Tuesday’s unveiling in Mafeteng, Bantu president John Leuta said Sentebale first sponsored the club in 2009 and even when the original deal ended a few years later, the company’s employees “never stopped supporting the club and would even show up at events held by Bantu to support.”
In addition, Leuta said both Bantu and Sentebale originate from Mafeteng and so it is important they join hands for the benefit of their district and Lesotho at large because “Bantu is countrywide.”
Leuta also urged Bantu’s supporters to go back to their roots and fully support Sentebale.

“At some point our fans came out saying we should reconsider Sentebale (as a sponsor) as they are the company that has passion to see the team growing and I had to listen to what our fans say,” Leuta said.
“What I love the most is the fact that our supporters realised how close we are with Sentebale. (The fans) said we made a mistake when we parted ways with Sentebale and that we should consider a company that is suitable.”

“I am happy with the passion I saw,” he added.
“We discussed a lot of things (with Sentebale) on what should be done going forward as a team. Very soon not a single team will stand Bantu’s attack. We will be able to pay daily transport for players who move every morning from Mafeteng to Maseru (Setsoto Stadium) for training sessions. We expect (our) sponsors to show us mistakes where we are going wrong so that we work well together.”

Sentebale’s sales manager, Alicia Motšoane, said Bantu had been knocking on the company’s doors for a while and it was an easy decision to renew the “warm relationship’ with the club.
“Sentebale sponsored Bantu because we are the Mafeteng community. Sentebale does not fear social responsibility that is why we also sponsor some orphanage homes and other local teams in Mafeteng,” Motšoane said.
“We are asking Basotho to support Sentebale because it is not a charity organisation, we can only be able to sponsor if we get customers. If things run smoothly we will continuously sponsor the team. If (Bantu) will give us accurate financial reports and continue to show discipline and not tarnish our name, we will stay with the team.”
