MTN Zambia has pledged to continue supporting the development of football in the country.
MTN Zambia Head of Consumer Marketing, Amanda Chipungu, said this in an interview with ZANIS in Lusaka today during the finals of the Chimpombwa football league and subsequent closure.
Mrs. Chipungu said MTN sponsored the Chimpombwa league because of its passion for grassroot soccer.
She said grassroot football was key to the development of the game in the country.
She said the main goal of the Chimpombwa league was to keep the youths away from bad social vices and to tap into the local grassroot.
Mrs. Chipungu said MTN will endeavour to support grassroot football in the country as part of the company’s corporate social responsibility.
She said MTN has since injected a substantial amount of money into the league in order to support logistics and for its success.
Mrs. Chipungu noted that MTN has been consistent in the sponsoring of MTN/FAZ Super Division League in the country because of its commitment to the sport.
Mrs. Chipungu added that MTN will also continue to support the Zambia national football team.
