“To us as sponsors, big teams are those that have progressed to this level. We do not look at names, but the quality of football being displayed. At this level, we urge football lovers in the country to continue giving support to their teams,” he said.

Fam Marketing and Commercial Director, Limbani Matola, dismissed accusations by other teams that fixtures are released at short notice.

Matola said draws for the competitions are conducted openly in the presence of team representatives hence it was unfair to accuse the association.
