United General Insurance (UGI), one of Malawi’s leading insurance companies, has for the eighth year running, sponsored the Blantyre Sports Club (BSC) Golf Closed Championship.
Blantyre Sports Club remains the only club in Malawi that enjoys sponsorship whenever it holds a closed championship. This year’s event will run from March 1-3 2013.
The championship, which is 46 years old, got UGI’s sponsorship commitment in 2007.
Asked why the organisation is still committed to the sponsorship, UGI Strategic Business Unit manager Diana Kambale said there were several reasons to that effect.
“For starters, BSC has been our long-time corporate client and we do not take that for granted. Additionally, most of the golfers of BSC are also our loyal clients; so, it is only proper that we show our appreciation.
“We committed in 2007 and we have stuck to our commitment. We are proud to be back again this year on the BSC fairways,” Kambale said.
On golfers’ expectations, Kambale said, as usual, there will be many good prizes and trophies up for grabs and that on the final day, which is Sunday, there will be a lot of business interaction and golfers will be informed of UGI’s innovative products on the market.
BSC golf section captain Medson Kalambule said he was happy with UGI’s commitment to sponsor the club.
