Maritzburg United have welcomed a new sponsor on board in KwaZulu-Natal-based fast food franchise Honchos.
The Team of Choice's marketing department have been busy during the current international break, roping in the grilled chicken specialists as the club's new partners.
Honchos was originally established in Pietermaritzburg some 13 years ago, making their alliance fitting in the context of 'supporting local'.
Maritzburg CEO Younus Kadodia welcomed Honchos on board, as the two brands look to extend their reach through the different industries.
"We are extremely happy and proud to be associated with Honchos. They are a massive franchise which is taking huge strides in the fast food industry in South Africa. Hopefully this deal will be the start of a long-standing relationship,” he said.
Honchos CEO Imthiaz Ebrahim also voiced his delight at joining forces with the football club, and expressed their interest in football development within the local community.
"Football development is something close to Maritzburg United and our involvement will hopefully add more value to the club and allow them to unearth more future stars for the country," said Ebrahim.
Maritzburg's next assignment will be to outsmart The Clever Boys when they host Bidvest Wits at the Harry Gwala Stadium this Saturday.
