Super League sponsors, TNM, on Monday re-launched the Sapota Mapeto promotion, with the team that hits 300,000 SMS now getting K1.5 million.
TNM Chief Commercial Officer, Daniel Makata, said this year’s promotion has brought new things to excite football fans to participate and support their teams.
“This is the best time to connect and support your favourite clubs. Through our network platform, we are helping clubs raise funds for their operations through an SMS campaign dubbed Sapota Mapeto and in this season, TNM has brought new innovative ideas to make the promotion more exciting to the football fans,” Makata said.
He expressed optimism that the money to be generated from the promotion would go a long way not only for the general operations of the teams, but also towards the welfare of individual players.
“The re-launch of Sapota Mapeto today demonstrates our commitment to uplifting the welfare of our teams especially for players who are our heroes,” he said.
He called on all football loving Malawians to endorse the promotion and support their respective teams to generate resources at the same time winning different prizes in the promotion.
“Our players, our heroes, our pride can only be taken care of and enjoy the game if we all join hands and be part of this exciting Sapota Mapeto promotion,” he said.
Just like last season, fans will be asked to send SMS of a team code to 1515 and get chance to win monthly prizes of K200, 000 cash, Flames replica jerseys, handsets and airtime.
But this season, the first team to hit 300,000 SMSs will get K1.5 million and two fans with highest SMSs will get 40 inch Samsung TVs.
Last year, the promotion raised K16.3 million while in 2013 it raised K12.6 million.
The biggest recipient, Big Bullets got K9.3 million.
The promotion would run from June to December when the league concludes.
