ZIMBABWE’S two football giants Highlanders and Dynamos were on Tuesday night oiled by energy giants Sakunda Holdings as they got a multi-million-dollar deal.
The football outfits received a combined US$5.3 million, which will be paid in local currency, over the next three years.
The deal expires in December 2023.
Each of the clubs will get US$450 000, to be channelled towards salaries and allowances, as well as US$60 000, which will be reserved for signing-on fees, per season, for three years.
They will also receive US$60 000, for administrative purposes, every season.
There will be a US$200 000 bonus, for winning the league title, with a further US$150 000 set aside for qualification, in the CAF Champions League.
Bosso and DeMbare captains were on Wednesday morning set to receive Ford Ranger Double Cabs. A pledge to give two Ford Everest vehicles to Bosso and DeMbare head coaches was also made by Sakunda Holdings which is owned by commodities businessman Kudakwashe Tagwirei.
The company emphasised the value of honouring football legends.
In that regard, at a function held at a Harare hotel, the company announced that it was going to honour the late George “Mastermind” Shaya with US$120 000 worth of a house.
Ex-Highlanders and Warriors speedy winger Madinda “Khathazile” Ndlovu is going to get a house valued at US$90 000.
Sakunda Holdings also extended the same gesture to former Dynamos and Warriors midfield genius Moses “Bambo” Chunga.
