Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa Emmanuel Mwamba says he is putting in frantic efforts to source for a corporate sponsor of Lusaka Tigers Football Club so that the team can acquire a good standard bus.
Speaking after watching Tigers beat Nchanga Rangers 1-0 on Saturday in an MTN/FAZ first week fixture, Mwamba said Tigers needed sponsorship befitting a super league team.
“I have been briefed by management that the club does not have a bus. The issue of a bus has to be treated as a matter of urgency because it would be very expensive to ferry players using hired vehicles.
“Now that you are in Premier League, you have to play premier football but you need premier support and you have a critical issue that of a bus. It will be very expensive for management to ferry you by hiring a vehicle, ” he said. Mwamba revealed that he was a product of Matero and therefore understood where Tigers was coming from and the challenges it faced.
“I grew up in Matero and knew the club very well, it will be my duty to convince companies such as Bata, Pepsi and others to help Tigers with corporate sponsorship, ” he said
Meanwhile, Mwamba has called for discipline among players if they have to go far in their career.
“The only difference between a good player and any other player is discipline. Work hard and never throw away discipline, “he said.
Mwamba is among other candidates that have filed for adoption to contest Matero constituency on Patriotic Front ticket during the August 11 general elections.
