Netone to Fly Warriors Fans to Gabon

IN a bid to ensure that the Warriors will not be short on support when they travel to Gabon for the African Cup of Nations, their sponsors NetOne have put a package that will see some fans being flown to the West African country to back the national team.

The mobile network services provider indicated through their acting chief executive Brian Mutandiro that the supporters’ trip is an all-expenses-paid-for journey and will cover all the Group B matches against Algeria, Senegal and Tunisia.

“We believe in our national team and we feel they should have supporters rallying behind them. The supporters also happen to be our customers and they must be rewarded for migrating to NetOne.

“By supporting these initiatives It’s not that we have too much money but we believe we owe it to the nation and our customers to give back as a gesture of appreciating their support to the business, ” said Mutandiro.

NetOne have seen their romance with local football growing since their first date with the game when bankrolling CAPS United, before partnering with the Premier Soccer League for the One Wallet Cup.

After pouring $250 000 for the Warriors’ Nations Cup campaign, the mobile network company also ensured “there is something in it for our valued customers”.

The sponsorship deal for the Warriors covers the senior team’s camp and travel to Gabon with Pasuwa’s men expected to leave Harare this morning for Cameroon where they will stop over for a high profile international friendly against the Indomitable Lions.
