Zimbabwe Soccer Fans in Facebook Appeal to Potential Corporate Sponsors


Former Warriors national team and Caps United PSL team player Alois Bunjira and soccer fans have set up the “Econet Save Our Football Campaign” on Facebook in a bid to convince the mobile operator to sponsor the league again

Zimbabwean football fans anxious about the future of the country's Premier Soccer League have turned to popular social Web sites like Facebook to urge domestic corporations to step up and sponsor the sport.

Former Warriors national team and Caps United PSL team player Alois Bunjira and soccer fans have set up the “Econet Save Our Football Campaign” on Facebook following the mobile provider's decision not to sponsor the PSL.

Bunjira tells VOA Studio 7 reporter Marvellous Mhlanga-Nyahuye that his group hopes to reach other sponsors besides Econet to make it possible for players to earn a living pursuing the country's most popular sport.

Bunjira says most Zimbabwean players do not earn enough to live decently unlike their international counterparts.
