Hockey outfit, Scorpions, has offered jerseys and all team attire advertising space for companies in return for sponsorship of the teamâ€™s trip to Zimbabwe for the 2012 Africa Cup of Clubs Hockey Championships.
The team needs K6 million (about $20 000) to travel to Bulawayo for the tournament that will run from December 1-8 2012.
“Our club is still comparatively small and does not have a sponsor. Our funds are not big and we function on winnings from various hockey competitions.
“As such, we are appealing for sponsorship from well-wishers. In return for their sponsorship, we will display their advertising materials at prominent places. We are also willing to put organisationsâ€™ logos on our uniforms,” said Scorpions manager, Alex Mpasa, in a statement released on Thursday.
HAM sponsored the team last year, but this year the association said it has not funds.
The funds will cater for the teamâ€™s expenses such as food, accommodation, transport, uniforms and tournament fees.
According to the host Hockey Association of Zimbabwe, the event will be hosted at Khumalo Hockey Stadium (KHS).
