Bay United get R3-million sponsorship

Posted: 6 March 2008 Time: 11:27

First Division Coastal Stream side Bay United yesterday received a shot in the arm in the form of a R3-million sponsorship from Aberdare Cables.

According to United’s manager Senzo Mazingisa, the sponsorship will run for three years with the Port Elizabeth-based side receiving R1 million each season.

“The sponsorship has come at the right time as we have set our sights on gaining promotion to PSL next season.

“This is great motivation for the team and I would like to thank the company’s CEO Ian Milla for associating his company with Bay United.

“We are confident that we will continue with our partnership with Aberdare Cables to the PSL next season.”

Mazingisa also disclosed to KickOff.com that they will be announcing a further sponsorship deal on Friday.

Bay United players have already been promised that they will share R1 million if the team gains promotion to the Absa Premiership next season.

“We are hoping this kind of incentive will encourage our boys to work harder to achieve our aspirations of having a team from Port Elizabeth in the elite league next season,” Masingisa added

Well done to Bay United for their achievements by securing a sponsorship for their team while still in the first division. This shows that it is not that business is ignoring football but maybe our teams are not doing enough to sell their teams. To think that there are team in the premier league without a sponsor makes me sick as they employ a lot of managers (marketing, branding, pr...etc) and what are all these people doing for teams??? nothing. Tems like Ajax, they are playing well with young players but they cannot attract crowds to their games and they are failing to secure sponsorship. Is it maybe because teams in SA are too ambitious and compares themselves with Pirates and Chiefs when negotiating deals? The reality is that business wants returns for investment. Look at Celtics their package from Vodacom was not the same as that of both Chiefs and Bucs. Thier package although still not equal to that of the two teams, it has increased because of their supporters ...etc.

Sure and Out
Mr. President

Some club owners run their teams from their own pockets and rely on the sale of players to make up for their operational costs. We know how Ajax initially came into being when 2 CT teams were amalgamated with interest from Amsterdam. But in recent times it has grown into a household brand and it shouldn't be difficult to get sponsorships/stakeholders but I suppose Commitis would like to be the sole owner.
