Simba Bhora Football Club has struck a fuel sponsorship deal with Cranrid Petroleum, with the company pledging to provide fuel for the Premier Soccer League (PSL) newcomers during the 2023 season.
Peter Mauchi, who owns, Cranrid Petroleum, said he will not hesitate to assist the Shamva-based club in other areas should the need arise.
H-Metro quoted Mauchi as saying he was inspired by Simba Bhora’s president Simba “Buju” Ndoro’s vision to bring topflight football to Shamva. Said Mauchi:
It’s not like someone sat down with me and convinced me and my crew to support this initiative.
But, I just saw every reason to support Ndoro for his efforts to make the province a better place for its people.
Trust me, in Zimbabwe, you can never count profits, but Ndoro’s determination in giving back to his province is praiseworthy.
As someone who is also doing business in the province, I just felt challenged and it’s something that everyone is talking about.
We want Simba Bhora to have longevity in the PSL, as everyone in the province is excited about this project, particularly in Shamva.
I’m also urging other stakeholders in the province to come on board and play their part because the project is now the face of our province.
We need to support our brother Ndoro and assist him in taking this thing to another level.
Ndoro said he appreciated Mauchi’s support adding there are other deals in the pipeline. He said;
I’m happy that we have secured this deal.
When you embark on a project, you’re never sure if people will support your vision or not, but when someone from the province, where I grew up decides to come on board, it just gives you a different feeling.
As Simba Bhora, we are willing to work with anyone who shares our vision.
We still have other deals which we are finalising and it’s all in the best interest of the people of Mashonaland Central.
