TNM has, through Football Association of Malawi (Fam), entered into a three-year K3 million communication partnership with Malawi National Football Team Coach, Ronny van Geneugden.
Under the partnership, the integrated mobile network operator will provide a TNMPlus contract package to van Geneugen, a press release from TNM Chief Officer– Consumer Services, Daniel Makata, stated Thursday.
Apart from donating to the Flames on several occasions, TNM also sponsors the Super League and the Cricket Academy.
The package brings unlimited talk time for local calls, unlimited SMSs, 10 GB per month for a period of three years plus a handset worth K450,000 and free Wi-Fi.
“TNM has noted that the coach is actively engaging Super League teams in his quest to develop the game in Malawi, hence the phone accords him an opportunity to link [up] with various stakeholders without hustles in his bid to change the fortunes of the Under-17, Under-20 and the senior national team.
“TNM will strive to contribute towards ensuring that the national team in general, and coach in particular, operate with utmost efficiency and our TNM Plus contract package offers exactly that to both individuals and businesses.
“TNM believes that the Flames, being a national team, belong to all of us. It is, therefore, our collective responsibility to support them financially, materially and morally,” Makata explained.
During the week, HTD Limited also sold Fam a car for van Geneugden at a subsidised price of K12.5 million. The previous week, Multichoice Malawi also provided the coach a television decoder.
Speaking when sealing the deal at a ceremony which took place at TNM headquarters in Blantyre, Fam Commercial Manager, Limbani Matola, hailed TNM for the donation, saying it will give the coach freedom to communicate with other stakeholders.
