No sponsorship for A Division Leagues

By Mikia Kalati

MASERU — The A Division Management Committee (ADMACO) is racing against time to secure sponsorship for the two A Division streams before the new season kick offs early next month.

ADMACO public relations officer, Lehlohonolo Borotho, admitted that it has been really tough for them to run the lower division league without a sponsor.

“Yes, it was very tough to run the league without a sponsor in the past season and we are doing all in our power to secure a sponsorship deal before the new season gets underway next month,” Borotho said.

He said the infighting within the football stakeholders had made it very hard for the corporate world to invest their money in football.

“The infighting and bad publicity about football politics has really made it difficult for sponsors to bring their money into the game and that is why we continue to struggle for a sponsor,” he said.

Borotho said it is only when the football fraternity can move towards one goal that they can win the trust of sponsors again.

“I hope for the sake of the game people can see the damage they have done, we have pledged to work as a team to create a good image that will help us get sponsors,” he said.

He told this paper that the new season will kick off on September 14.

The prize monies for all the teams that were in the two A Division streams last season will come from the coffers of the Lesotho Football Association (Lefa).

Melele and Mphatlalatsane are the two teams that gained automatic promotion from the A Division to the premier league.

Roma Rovers and Sefothafotha lost in the promotional playoffs to win promotion to top-flight football.
