Nyasa Big Bullets have roped in sports gear merchants Intosport as the official match ball sponsors.
Bullets and Intosport have sealed a year-long deal subject to renewal.
Meanwhile, Intosport has provided the People’s Team with 10 official match balls, valued at K1.5 million.
Speaking on Monday during the unveiling of the deal in Blantyre, Intosport owner Shabir Ismail said official match balls are important to players.
He said: “Players need official match balls because they are faster and convenient when teams participate in international competitions as Bullets did in Confederation of Africa Football [CAF] Champions League.
“I would also like to advise other clubs to use official match-balls for them to be at par with other leagues worldwide,” he said.
Bullets acting chief executive officer Escort Chinula described the deal as a move in the right direction.
“I am excited as the partnership with Intosport has added value to Nyasa Big Bullets brand. These are 2019 latest high-class match balls.
“We would have used a lot of money to buy. We need to have partners to move forward.”
Chinula also appealed to the team’s supporters to buy Intosport products.
In an interview, Bullets captain John Lanjesi applauded the partnership, saying match balls are important, especially during international games. “It will help us because we have to move with the rest of the world. But they should also consider boots to go along with match balls,” he said.
