Months after introducing the player of the month award, Nyasa Big Bullets Football Club has announced that they have partnered with Medical insurance company, Precious Medical international to introduce the goal of the month award.
The one-year deal with option to extend will see the Medical insurance company awarding the scorer of the best goal with K100, 000 starting this November.
Chief Executive Officer for Precious Medical international, Dr Getrude Mateyu said she was happy to have stroke the deal with the people’s team saying the style of the management fits well in their plans.
“As part of our benefits structure, we offer an awareness program that encourages people to do things differently and better. So, looking at the progress and the productivity, the spirit of teamwork, the discipline and even the style of management, this is something that we want to encourage in every sector and Bullets fit well into our plans because they are a winning brand which never gives up even if the going gets tougher and we want to use the club as an icon to achieve that.
“We believe the Goal of the Month will encourage the players to work even harder and continue bringing success to the club,” she told the media.
Nyasa Big Bullets Chief Executive Officer, Suzgo Nyirenda said partnering with companies is one of the things that they have embarked on in their Commercialisation drive.
He said, “Having embarked on the commercialization drive, partnerships like these are important. We unveil this partnership among several other innovations we are bringing because Bullets is the local champion and what we do is for the people of Malawi in their majority supporting us. We boast of the best support base and for partnering with us, Precious Medical International will also benefit from our marketing efforts and our supporters will also be happy to join them.”
An independent panel will nominate the best three goals scored in a month in all competitions and fans will vote for the winning goal by SMS through the club’s 441 platform.
Bullets already have the Player of the Month Award that is sponsored by Hubertus Clausius.
