Silver Strikers to roll out supporters’ registration
TNM Super League giants Silver Strikers are set to embark on a registration exercise of their supporters in the 2021 season.
The move is a continuation of Silver’s marketing initiatives as they continue operating as a commercial entity.
Silver Chief Executive Officer Thokozani Chimbali said they would work with the supporters’ main committee in rolling out the campaign.
“Everything is in place. We already have a machine for printing of the membership cards,” Chimbali said.
He said the club’s board would meet supporters committee officials to ensure that the process is inclusive.
“The supporters committee will not be left out of this exercise. We will be with them every step of the way. We will involve all stakeholders in this because we value their input.
“What we are doing will empower our supporters to have a say in their club activities. We will meet the supporters’ committee chairperson so that, together, we decide on which direction we will take,” Chimbali said.
He said the exercise would also help the club to have a clear picture of how many supporters it has across the country.
Silver will be the second club in the country to roll out the campaign after Nyasa Big Bullets.
The People’s Team embarked on the exercise about three years ago but managed to register only 13,000 supporters.
However, Chimbali said the Central Bankers will manage to reach out to more supporters.
“We want al l our supporters to be in our books. Our supporters’ committee will go into zones for awareness campaigns before commencement of the actual registration.
“We are yet to fix the registration fee. This is one of the areas we will agree upon with the supporters’ committee. We will soon announce commencement of the whole exercise,” he said.
