Malawi Telecommunications Limited (MTL) has felt short of assuring MTL Queens’ continued sponsorship.
In a brief response to a questionnaire, MTL corporate affairs manager Tina Das on Wednesday simply said the company “will duly communicate the netball sponsorship”.
The company’s position should create panic in the netball fraternity as when pulling out of football, Das said “we want to concentrate our social support activities on long-term economic development activities to a broader scope of stakeholders in order to benefit a wider sector of the society.”
MTL has despite freezing Mighty Wanderers’ purse in 2010 continued to bankroll the netball team.
On Tuesday, MTL withdrew from football sponsorship, dashing hopes of Blantyre United, Escom United, Chikhwawa United, Big Bullets and Mighty Wanderers which submitted their sponsorship proposals in 2011.
