Club chairperson Keni Mubaiwa told The Zimbabwean at the launch of the Glamour Boys’ new kit, by sponsor Adidas, that the club was engaging the municipality to get land.
The Minister of Postal and Courier Services, Webster Shamu, recently urged local authorities to allocate land to football clubs to construct stadiums. “Oversees, local authorities are the ones that give land to clubs and we hope that the city fathers will wake up and do the same,” said Shamu. “The 20 percent fees that we are being charged for using Rufaro stadium is too much. This money could be used for developing the club,” said Mubaiwa.
Dynamos’ principal sponsors, BANCABC, pledged to finance the Glamour Boys in their next adventure in the African Champions League, should they make it. Managing director Hashmon Matemera said they would also consider sponsoring the team at the end of 2014. “When we started sponsoring Dynamos four years ago, our objective was to transform the level and standards of football in Zimbabwe,” he said. “We knew it would be a long journey and that we could not do it on our own. So when we welcomed Adidas to partner us last year, we knew we were in the right direction.”
