Tura Magic gets sponsorship from Conselect

WINDHOEK, 24 OCT (NAMPA) Conselect Engineering will sponsor Namibia Premier League outfit Tura Magic Football Club for the 2015/16 Namibia Premier League (NPL) season.
The one-season sponsorship will be in the form of the teams step-out gear (for warming up before games) and match day kits.
The team will also receive financial assistance for the whole season from Conselect Engineering, a local company that specialises in electrical consulting engineering and mechanical consulting engineering.
Handing over the kit here on Friday, Conselects principal manager Alexander Frederico said it is part of their social responsibility to invest in the community and improve the standard of living for its citizens.
The sponsorship that we are giving to Tura Magic is a kit sponsorship and money for the 2015/16 season, but all this can be extended to the 2016/17 season. Our pledge with Tura Magic is really simple. We want the club to finish in the top three in the league and we will then extend this sponsorship to the 2016/17 NPL season, he said.
Frederico could not reveal how much money they will be investing in the club due to a clause in the contract the two parties signed.
Speaking at the same occasion Tura Magic Chairperson Peter Nakurwa said they are grateful to have received such a sponsorship, because it is only through such support from corporate entities that local football can become competitive and assist the national team with quality players.
I urge other business entities to imitate the example of Conselect Engineering in supporting local football. Football is an employment creator; employment creation is poverty reduction; poverty reduction is crime prevention and crime prevention leads to a healthy society, said Nakurwa.
