Southern Region Football Association (SRFA) has pressed the panic button over promised sponsorship from Nsejjere Casual and Sports Wear.
SRFA general secretary, George Pagaja, said they were keeping their fingers crossed over expected prize money from Nsejjere before the conclusion of the league.
“We need to work out something since it is not clear whether Nsejjere will honour the deal. We know it will be harsh on the teams if they don’t get anything,” he said.
Pagaja said they were exploring other ways to source the money for top three teams.
Max Bullets, Cobbe Barracks and Mangochi Police are the current first, second and third-placed teams in the Premier Division.
During the first season, Nsejjere gave K1.5 million to Surestream Academy (now Fisd Wizards) for emerging Premier Division champions.
The firm also gave K750,000 to second-placed Cobbe Barracks while Max Bullets, who finished third, got K500,000.
However, there were no prizes for Division One teams.
Nsejjere’s local representative, Jacob Chikoya, said he was no longer involved with the firm, and referred this reporter to former Flames midfielder Peter Mgangira.
Mgangira said the firm’s lawyer, Moses Nkhono, was better placed to comment. Nkhono promised to come back with a response
