The general manager (marketing and corporate affairs) Themba Sibanda revealed this at the draw for this year’s championship qualifiers at the ZITF exhibition lounge on Thursday.

“As will be demonstrated by the growth in the sports sponsorship expenditure figures this year, we have ensured the 2012 Ingwebu National Tug-of-war championships tournament is bigger, much bigger than the preceding years.
