The deal, which was signed in Mutare recently, will see the army side receiving US$100 000, training kits and other requirements.
The company also pledged to sponsor the end of year awards on condition that the team finishes the season among the top eight teams in the premiership
Buffalos have been in the past failing to make ends meet to the extent of failing to honour their outstanding players who made sure the team got promotion which came with a record of 26 unbeaten matches in the Eastern Region.
Buffalo’s secretary general and spokesperson Tendai Chitowa confirmed the development to Standardsport noting the package came at the right time as it would help his side start the season well. He added that they will continue to look for more sponsorship as their budget is set to balloon in the top flight league.
“We are very happy that Mbada has chipped in to sponsor with US$100 000 sponsorship, training kits and other sporting requirements. We will not rest in sourcing for sponsorship as our budget is pegged at US$700 000,” Chitowa said.
Mbada Diamonds has been active in supporting Zimbabwean football and recently sponsored the country to broadcast live the Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea and Gabon. The company introduced itself last year by sponsoring the Mbada Diamonds Cup.
