National pensions Scheme Authority (NAPSA) Director General Yollard Kachinda has expressed delight with the aid from Stanbic Bank Zambia.
Mr. Kachinda was guest of honor at the signing ceremony, an event which saw Stanbic Bank Zambia pump in $70,000 to aid Napsa Stars FC for six months.
The Director General said in his speech that football is quite an expensive sport to run and requires concerted efforts from various stakeholders, including business entities and supporters alike.
He added that it is a great pleasure and honour to welcome on board Stanbic Bank Zambia limited, a new partner sponsor for Napsa Stars FC, with the NAPSA boss looking forward to an increased sponsorship in 2020 to crown Stanbic as the official kit sponsor for Napsa stars football club.
He said the partnership could not have come at a better time than now when Zambian football in general and Napsa Stars FC in particular is experiencing a major transformation.
“My management team and I treasure this partnership as it will ease some of the logistical challenges the team faces. Allow me to state that this partnership with Stanbic Bank is more than just corporate social responsibility, as it will go a long way in supplementing our efforts in promoting football, creating jobs and effective demand for goods and services thereby reducing poverty,” Mr. Kachinda said.
The DG also assured Stanbic Bank that the partnership is going to help transform football in Zambia and should be nurtured for a long time to come.
Mr. Kachinda has also called upon players, technical team, administration and the board to embrace this support by putting in the best to ensure that the team succeeds.
